Research MATTERS

After two and a half days at INQRI's annual meeting, discussing ways that research can make an impact, it was so refreshing to come back and find this article by Ellen Kleinerman, "Scientific Research Helps Build Better Hospitals."

From the article:
"The modifications [i.e. couches for overnight guests, private bathrooms, etc.] may sound like unnecessary amenities, but research shows that such enhancements offer a multitude of benefits: They help people recover faster, increase employee well-being and efficiency, reduce patient falls, decrease hospital-acquired infections, lower medication errors and save money."
