It is a large part of our mission to help the NHS include biophilia as part of its national strategy to save money, improve patient lives and experience, staff wellness and staff retention.
Having a window with a view onto nature can help improve the recovery rates of patients. This was first research way back between 1972 and 1981. That is nearly HALF a DECADE ago… “Records on recovery after cholecystectomy of patients in a suburban Pennsylvania hospital between 1972 and 1981 were examined to determine whether assignment to a room with a window view of a natural setting might have restorative influences. Twenty-three surgical patients assigned to rooms with windows looking out on a natural scene had shorter postoperative hospital stays, received fewer negative evaluative comments in nurses’ notes, and took fewer potent analgesics than 23 matched patients in similar rooms with windows facing a brick building wall.” More and more research has proved that nature does improve the recovery rates and health of patients.
But what if you can’t cut a hole in the wall, or the window looks at bricks? Representations of nature work as well. In hospital environments having something that you can clean is imperative, depending on the level of hygiene needed, there is a biophilic solution for you needing no maintenance and will encourage recovery in patients, wellbeing among staff and workplace wellness to improve mental health and provide a positive working environment without intervention, saving money, time and reducing medication. Argenta-Wellness has that printed solution for you.
Office fit outs are now including biophilic enhancements to the workplace environments, and the private health sector is catching up. But the poor NHS is lagging behind in what is a non-invasive, cost-effective solution which has longevity, needs no maintenance and is moveable!
