Patient room

Comfort and functionality

Patient rooms in hospitals and medical facilities may differ a great deal in appearance, but they all have one thing in common – they are always human centric. Both the staff and the patient's needs must be met, therefore flexibility and high quality are a prerequisite.

An individual patient room can sometimes become the patient's only fixed point during a traumatic or turbulent time. This makes it important to ensure that the room is as pleasant as possible. Such rooms sometimes have to accommodate advanced technical equipment while offering the chance to relax and socialise with relatives.

1. During daylight hours, the natural light is complemented with ambient lighting to help the patient to stay awake and provide good working light for staff.

Accordingly, one of the roles of the lighting in the patient room is to create a safe and pleasant environment that best promotes healing and recovery. The lighting should offer the best possibility of maintaining the circadian rhythm while creating a spatial context for the person staying in the room.

2. Subdued light levels during the evening stimulate melatonin production and prepare the body for sleep.

For staff, the lighting should also facilitate the nursing and examinations that need to be performed, in a manner that is safe and appropriate for the patient. Such tasks need to be possible regardless of the time of day but without disturbing the patient's circadian rhythm too much. Accordingly, we have lighting solutions with different colour temperatures, created to match these different nursing tasks and procedures.
