Hannah Jefferies – Healthcare Design Magazine

n this first part of a three-part series on incorporating family into the patient room, authors Hannah Jefferies and Jennifer Merchant of Perkins+Will discuss the core concepts of the model and introduce a project at Rush University Medical Center, where that model was used.

“One of the key things that one realizes in training is that we very often treat whole family units. When you are treating persons who have elements of frailty, their loved ones become all the more critical to their care and to plans that help move patients toward better health. Thus supporting families/loved ones to feel at place in the clinical environments helps develop better plans that have more chance of successful implementation with our patients,” according to Dr. Anthony J. Perry, MD, clinical transformation officer at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago.

    ONE day last summer, Charlie Martin felt a sharp pain in his lower back. But he couldn’t jump into his car and rush to the doctor’s office or the emergency room: Mr. Martin, a crane operator, was working on an oil rig in the South China Sea off Malaysia.

    He could, though, get in touch with a doctor thousands of miles away, via two-way video. Using an electronic stethoscope that a paramedic on the rig held in place, Dr. Oscar W. Boultinghouse, an emergency medicine physician in Houston, listened to Mr. Martin’s heart.

    “The extreme pain strongly suggested a kidney stone,” Dr. Boultinghouse said later. A urinalysis on the rig confirmed the diagnosis, and Mr. Martin flew to his home in Mississippi for treatment.

    Mr. Martin, 32, is now back at work on the same rig, the Courageous, leased by Shell Oil. He says he is grateful he could discuss his pain by video with the doctor. “It’s a lot better than trying to describe it on a phone,” Mr. Martin says.

    El centro de investigación y tratamiento del cáncer MD Anderson ha cambiado su logo por cuarta vez en sus casi 70 años de historia. Y lo ha hecho de una peculiar manera que envía un mensaje optimista que aspira a conseguir un futuro sin cáncer: ha tachado el nombre de la enfermedad de su logo.

    El centro, dependiente de la Universidad de Texas, ha conservado el tagline “Making cancer history”, que se introdujo hace 14 años, y ha reforzado la idea que propugna con una visible línea roja que simboliza de manera rotunda la decidida apuesta por imponerse a la enfermedad. Esta ejecución se ve además reforzada por la eliminación de todos los colores diferentes al gris y negro que daban algo de variedad cromática al antiguo logo y que ahora permiten que la simbólica línea destaque con más fuerza.
