Design Collaborative hosts Healthy Hospitals forum
Last week, Design Collaborative hosted its second in a series of forum events titled Healthy Hospitals. Facility directors, managers, and safety staff from area hospitals joined us in DC University for breakfast presentations that focused on the safety of both patients and staff. Speakers from the Copper Development Association in New York City came out to discuss the use of antimicrobial copper in controlling infections. The second presentation was from Wieland, a local healthcare furniture designer and manufacturer. Their presentation focused on the changing design of patient room furniture to help reduce injuries for nurses and patients.
