What if patients were included in designing new treatment areas?
What if the result was a state-of-the-art, person-centered facility that provides exceptional comfort and better outcomes?
That’s exactly what you’ll find at the Infusion Suite inside Regional One Health. The creation of our Infusion Suite involved the people who receive ongoing treatments that allow them to keep living without frequent hospitalizations. The result was a one-of-a-kind treatment area that you have to see.
Infusion patients deal with a variety of health concerns, ranging from an accident victim in need of a blood transfusion to gastrointestinal patients receiving IV treatments or an HIV patient taking medications. Many patients with chronic illnesses require weekly or monthly treatments through medications that are given intravenously. Those patients often sit in a room with other patients for hours at a time to receive those treatments.
The Infusion Suite was built from a patient’s point of view with touches focused on comfort, such as new heated massage chairs that all feature their own sound dome to concentrate TV volume for that specific patient.
“This area provides a therapeutic model where patients are involved in their care and treated as people first and the chronic disease is just one of those things we deal with,” said Susan Cooper, MSN, RN, FAAN, senior vice president/chief integration officer for Regional One Health. “People who live with chronic disease don’t want to be thought of as their disease. They’re people first who just happen to live with chronic disease that need our care.”
