When you want to address the issue of humanization of health services, you might think that it is intrinsic to interpersonal relationships, to good treatment, to the respect offered to patients in health organizations.
But it really is the tip of the iceberg, under this concept there are really a number of elements that directly or indirectly interfere with this attribute; an example of this is the impact in this context of the infrastructure and particular architectural conditions that a health service should have, which goes beyond the design of simple spaces.
The first thing that is sought is to clarify the definition of humanization, followed by the humanization of hospital consultancy services and its relationship with the physical infrastructure of health organizations. The concept of humanization is a variety of meanings that have been developing over time and that many of them relate to the word dignity.
But to be able to contextualize it at this time, it could be inferred that humanization consists of: “in acts or actions that man performs in a conscious and responsible manner together with a series of values that allow him to share ethically within a collective.
Planning and architectural design
Hospital infrastructure and architectural design has been changing over time covering the needs of the moment; first as a place of mass attention where no type of classification of the patients was made, then they were grouped by age, gender and more thought about infection control, over time new services were developed which allowed, that these type entities will begin to visualize as centres of scientific knowledge, in addition to being a centre of attention thereby favouring that the architectural conditions change; currently, we seek to offer quality and safe health services, two components that are intertwined with humanization; triad that at the time of design become the basis of the same and premise of architectural design.
The evidence-based design is the process of making decisions about the healthcare environment based on reliable research to achieve the best possible results. This process requires the development of protocols and best practices to seek risk reduction, improve patient outcomes, promote and share knowledge and can be easily done by hospital consultancy services in India.
It is based on defining the objectives of the hospital, gathering relevant information, exploring/interpreting the reliable research that supports the objective, innovating to use knowledge in order to design and obtain the best possible results, developing hypotheses of what are the expected results, establish a baseline for performance indicators,
Sustainability in construction is related to not abusing natural resources. On this, great advances have been made in some European countries since the Energy Performance of Buildings (2003), entity that regulates the construction, recommends special attention in the constructive aspects, form, orientation, use of light and natural ventilation, as well as in the application of renewable energies and high-efficiency systems such as cogeneration, heat pumps, etc.
The trend that has been adopted in the rest of the world and has great validity because it joins the policies of prevention and control of global warming.
