Surname5 Students’ name Professors’ name Course Date A preferred medical office layout Patients who visit hospitals require spacious, logical, and friendly medical offices that are accessible and convenient. Recommendation for medical consults influences a lot in a patient’s visit and I either encourage or discourage their visits. The layout of the office should accommodate the patients, depending on patient numbers and frequency of visits as well as the capacity of the staff. In this paper, we aim at comparing two different doctors’ offices to determine the one likely to be recommended for a family member. Most doctors’ consultative appointments begin at the reception with waiting. Therefore, the waiting areas should be designed in a way that gives a proper first impression and enhances patient comfortability (Lachter 58). One doctor’s reception had individual waiting chairs that were spread on the perimeters of the room while in the other doctor’s office were nice sofas tightly fitted. The individual seats created a safe space for patients that don’t feel comfortable sharing closed spaces. The first waiting bay had sections for the consulting patients and “sick” patients whereas the second reception had only one section. This layout brought fear to patients in contacting communicable diseases. From the above comparisons, I would recommend the first doctor’s office to a relative. A good doctor’s office should be functional and efficient to enable physicians to perform their therapies fast and effectively. The examinations should be organized to avoid confusion of patients as well as doctors. In a survey of the two doctors’ offices, the first one had nurses at the reception who booked in patients using a system and assigned a room number for subsequent examinations. In the second office the nurse at reception who kept running back and forth into storage to get files. The consultation rooms of the first doctor’s office were identical which enabled physicians to know exactly where to get their equipment’s no matter which rooms their patients were referred to. This system creates a reflexive action on physicians on supplies to avoid confusion and time-wasting (Kripalani 314). The first doctor’s office would be preferred and recommended to family members. Doctor’s offices should provide privacy for patients. Apart from reception, offices as well as storage rooms ought to be out of sight (Murray 1035). Nurses recording patient’s information should be secluded, telephone calls to patients should be private and diagnosis and therapy should be confidential. The two doctors’ offices visited showed that the first one had a disappearing corridor with consulting rooms along with it. The other one had on the triage area consulting rooms made of wood and doors shut with curtains. Patient and doctor’s conversation could be heard from the triage area. The former doctor’s office provided air-tight privacy for consultations, unlike the latter that patients’ privacy leaked out. Therefore, the former could be recommended for a family member. In conclusion, medical office layout plays a pivotal role in patients’ preferences for visits. In our comparison of two doctors’ offices, it is imperative that the first office was preferred because the waiting area was spacious, had functional flow and proper planning of consultations and the consultation rooms protected the patient’s privacy. These conditions provide a good medical office and are easily recommended.
