A New Class Act: The 2018 Guidelines and Major Revisions to Imaging, Procedure, and Operating Rooms
Join AIA Columbus and the Healthcare Committee at the June Design Lecture! This presentation will review major revisions in the 2018 FGI Guidelines for hospitals and outpatient facilities, focusing on the sections that address operating, procedure, and imaging rooms.
The 2018 Health Guidelines Revision Committee (HGRC) made a concerted effort to align the definition and application of requirements for the various room-types where procedures take place. This alignment is based on the level of invasiveness of the procedure and the perceived level of risk to the patient. The HGRC also created a classification system for imaging that gives basic imaging room requirements, with additional details for specific modalities, so imaging room design can more easily adapt to new technologies.
Finally, the Guidelines has added multi-layered clearances to the space requirements for procedure and operating rooms, and the appendix includes expanded guidance on determining OR size and layout, including a list of equipment often used in operating rooms.
