Inpatient units with a neighborhood feel
All of our inpatient suites will be grouped into 12-bed "neighborhoods," each with its own nurses' station and an extensively equipped supply area. In doing so, patients will be close to their caregivers and caregivers will be close to the supplies and equipment they need. It's known as the 90/5 rule, which means 90 percent of what a caregiver needs is only 5 seconds away.
With this decentralized configuration, nurses can devote more time to patients and less time traveling the halls.
