Each year thousands of dollars are spent on the construction or renovation of hospital facilities for children, yet no systematic body of information has been available to enable designers of new facilities to benefit from the experience of others. This broadly-illustrated, easy-to-use book presents design directives for pediatricians, architects, administrators, and others interested in more human environments for children who have to be cared for away from home. The authors examine the needs of children at varying stages from infancy to adolescence and relate these social and behavioral needs to specific recommendations for the physical design and management of a hospital. Importance is placed on the provision for medical services outside the hospital as well as the need for parental accommodations within.
