St. John’s Nuclear Medicine Department Renovation

This project reconciled JCAHO/ Life Safety code violations I found while preparing the Statement of Conditions for this facility. The renovated space also allowed for more efficiency while serving the patient. Their existing waiting space was in dire need of an update and additional space, it consistently scored very low on their patient satisfaction scores and patients almost daily overflowed into the hallway. This renovation also gave the in-patients more privacy because they are usually in a hospital gown; in the past they waited with the out-patients.

Challenge:

Joint Commission violations, HIPAA concerns between in-patients and out-patients.

Solution:

Remedied violations and they scored much higher in patient satisfaction.
