Exam Room Configuration - Example 10

Posted Oct 30 2008 3:21pm

The following configuration has been provided by the director for a family health team in the Ottawa region. Click on the images to view full size.

Examination_rm_photo1"We have been looking for a modern examination room layout for our upcoming renovations and expansion to our clinic. We have just added 2 new rooms as a temporary measure (to our capacity problems) and had a number of professionals working on this. These rooms presented a challenge because they are about 9x8 feet. I hope our new configuration will be 10x10 feet.

We are using commercial furniture in this trial for the following reasons:

  • Prices are in line with custom made millwork finishes that are standard will be around for some time since these companies tend not to change them very often.
  • Many more "little" features come built in.
  • The designers can make it fit your location and requirements.

Exam_room_layout_plan_1 I'll try to supply some real photos in the next few weeks, but you can see from the photo (taken from brochure) the look we are trying for. The drawings that are attached show you the layout of the rooms with breakout of the furniture. In addition, sinks are being installed with foot controls only (for infection control). These cutouts for the foot controls come precut  in the furniture. The colour of this furniture has been designed to match the examination table top cover, floor and wall colours for a calming effect. Exam_room_layout_plan_2 The same colour scheme will be migrated throughout the clinic. Due to the size of these rooms we were not able to design a good location for the garbage that meets our infection control goals. We hope this can be solved with a little bigger rooms."
