US Department of Veterans Affairs, Loma Linda 4SE Medical/Surgical Unit

Loma Linda, California

LEO A DALY provided full design services for this 16-bed Medical/Surgical Acute Care Unit. The unit includes 2 isolation rooms and 2 bariatric rooms. The design of the 16-bed unit is intended to be the first phase of four total phases that results in the re-development of all inpatient services on the fourth floor.  At the end of the fourth and final phase, all inpatient units on the fourth floor will be re-developed into identical inpatient units. The unit will be used by two patient acuity groups: general acute care and step down ICU. The design incorporates several evidence-based industry trends:

• Promote staff observation of the patients
• Reduce the risk of falls
• Leverage the benefits of decentralized nursing strategies
• Incorporate acuity adaptable inpatient rooms
