Shared Common Spaces

Shared Common Spaces

In shared spaces where patients are accompanied general purpose luminaires are suitable. However, guidance from the clinical team should be sought to determine the exact requirements. Quality of life spaces are private areas where a patient can relax and have quiet time. Alternatively social spaces are where staff and patients can interact in social and leisure activities to promote well-being and a sense of community. These spaces need to be both comfortable and non-threatening.
