acute care units in U.S. hospitals. Journal of Nursing Scholarship, 41(1), 79–86.
Overview: This descriptive study examined the current state of hospital unit design
characteristics recommended by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) in
81 adult medical-surgical units and 56 intensive care units in six metropolitan areas. The
AHRQ recommends that the following unit design characteristics positively impact patient
outcomes: single rooms, work areas for staff that are not a long distance from the bedside,
frequent staff hand hygiene stations, certain types of unit configuration, percentage of private
rooms, and presence or absence of carpeting. The purpose of this study is to provide a
benchmark and to assess nursing environments. Data were collected by observation,
measurement, and interviews. The researchers conclude that few of the hospital units met
the AHRQ recommendations. Further research is required to expand understanding of these
design elements, their interaction, and impact on outcomes.
