Create a Positive and Healing Healthcare Environment

Create a Positive and Healing Healthcare Environment

It is now widely accepted that creating a positive environment in healthcare settings has a significant impact on patients’ wellbeing, potentially leading to fewer infections, therapeutic benefits, reduced pain and shorter hospital stays.

An effective way to achieve this is through art. The recent All-Party Parliamentary Group on Arts, Health and Wellbeing report found that art can help meet challenges in health and social care around ageing, loneliness, long-term conditions and mental health – while also saving the care sector money.

Some of the benefits that art can have within a care environment include:

  • Easing anxiety, stress and depression for both patients and staff
  • Shortening patients’ length of stay in hospital
  • Reducing patients' need for painkilling medication
  • Improving staff morale
  • Helping improve communication between patients and carers
  • Helping improve the overall experience of the environment

Having worked closely with healthcare facility managers for more than 50 years, we at Gradus understand the need for interior solutions that are not only functional and hygienic, but also aesthetically pleasing. For example, our SureProtect Design protective sheet is available in a range of wood, metal and composite finishes, as well as the option of a bespoke printed finish. It is perfect for healthcare environments, as it is both easy to clean and can be used to create stimulating and inspiring interiors.

Visit us on Stand C20 at the upcoming Healthcare Estates Exhibition, where our team of healthcare specialists will be on-hand to offer information and advice about SureProtect Design and our range of other products for protecting and maintaining healthcare buildings.
