Patient sociality in hospital architectural space: a qualitative case study in Namibia.
KTH, Skolan för arkitektur och samhällsbyggnad (ABE).
2005 (Engelska)Ingår i: World hospitals and health services : the official journal of the International Hospital Federation, ISSN 1029-0540, Vol. 41, nr 2, s. 17-20, 40, 42Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat) Published
Abstract [en]

The article presents research on the relationship between admitted patients' social needs and hospital architectural space in an African context. Interaction with relatives and fellow patients is very valuable to the well-being of the patient. The results show inflexible and restrictive spatial conditions that disturb this interaction, for instance, by aggravating the ubiquitous overcrowding and people leaving the ward. One important reason for leaving the ward is to socialise with other people. Relatives, who assist with caring tasks in the ward, stay overnight in a yard in the hospital grounds under uncomfortable and health threatening conditions. The results illustrate how patients' well-being can improve by removing inflexibility and restrictions on space.
