A Study on Proposal of Facility Standard by Research of Safety Accidents at Elderly Housing Welfare Facility

Journal of The Korea Institute of Healthcare Architecture, volume 17, issue 2, 2011, Pages 7~16
The death toll of the elderly by accidents in 2007 takes 6.5% of total death toll. The lost income from this is estimated to be 17 trillion and 511 billion won. According to CISS of Korea Consumer Protection Board, the number of safety related accidents of the elderly at home in 2006 was 486 cases in 2006 and has gradually increased every year. This thesis created 115 guidelines at 14 spaces as facility evaluation index evaluating the aging friendliness of the facility and safety related accidents generated at elderly resident welfare facility, examined influence variables of safety related accidents with 191 elderly including demographic variable, physical skill variable, social psychological variable and facility environmental variables, and then verified relevance between safety accidents and each influence variable. As a result, it was verified through ANOVA test of SAS Package Program and
- test that facility environmental variable would be closely related to the accident. In this regard, this study newly proposes the facility standards of aging friendly facility by supplementing them with contents and guidelines of facility evaluation table as ways to reduce safety related facility of the elderly.
Research Trends of Healthcare and Welfare Facilities -An Assessment of Korea Institute of Healthcare Architecture Journal-
Kim, Duk-Su ;
Journal of The Korea Institute of Healthcare Architecture, volume 17, issue 2, 2011, Pages 17~25
This study analyzes the research trends and evaluates the specialized characteristics of the journal of Korea healthcare architecture. Total 308 papers from 1995(Vol.1) to 2010(Vol.16) were analyzed by following seven criteria: (1) research focus by analyzing the key words of each paper; (2) research method(qualitative and quantitative research); (3) research nature(practical/prescriptive vs. theoretical/normative); (4) research target(healthcare, welfare, and others); (5) researcher characteristics(position, major, and numbers of author); (6) supported research(in-university, out-of-university, and out-of-pocket funds); and (7) international study. The research findings include followings. First, research focus lies in the function of healthcare and welfare facilities. Second, qualitative method is the dominant form of research. Third, practical/prescriptive research continuously increases. Fourth, research target is mainly a healthcare facility, while the research of welfare facility is increasing. Fifth, the considerable numbers of first author are graduate students. Sixth, out-of-university research funds increase. Finally, international studies related to Japan are mostly published.
A Study on the Guideline of Classification of Healthcare Facilities in the Regulation

It is very important to justify the reasonable role of healthcare facilities in the law in order to provide considerable medical services to the patient. Defining the right role of healthcare facilities makes it possible to build adequate Health Care Delivery System which might be helpful for the patient. However, the information of healthcare facilities in Korean law is so unclear that people are able to hardly understand what sort of proper medical service is for them. Furthermore, there is not enough regulation to differentiate each type of hospitals in the law. The result of this study is summarized into three points. Firstly, the current medical law does not reflect differences of function which each medical facility has. Secondly, the method of classification of healthcare facilities in the law disagrees with the Health Care Delivery System. Finally, there is no information on the type of sickbed in the law. Therefore, this study intend to analyze cause of problems which the law contains in order to be used for the fundamental resource for the healthcare facility planning.
A Methodological Consideration on the Evidence-Based Design related to Health Effects
Min, Sang-Choong ;
Journal of The Korea Institute of Healthcare Architecture, volume 17, issue 2, 2011, Pages 35~44
The aim of this study is to review the literature addressed the methodology to measure and evaluate the health outcomes as evidences for health benefits through the study on the healing environment, garden, therapeutic garden and viewing landscape and so forth. The research methods and measures used to assess health effects in the reviewed studies have applied in a different way ranged from quantitative methods (physical measures or quantitative observations) to qualitative methods (qualitative observations and surveys). In a literature review of research articles on the health outcomes have been found various research methods and measures used to assess health effects. This study will be concentrated mainly on methodological considerations in order to find the significant evidences related to evidence-based design (EBD). Future research should build the body of methodological knowledge to find more empirical evidences as sound scientific data and to improve the effectiveness of design interventions.
Korean Pediatric Patients' Preferences for Patient Room Design

The visual sensory information in physical environments can induce or reduce occupants' stress. In healthcare settings, positive environmental stimulations can promote patient well-being by reducing their stress: poor health environments work against a patient's health. Changing the color in a patient room is an inexpensive process and thus finding better colors for healthcare settings is a cost effective method of improving healing environments. Color may have important implications for pediatric patients, but the investigation of Korean populations has been non-existent. The purpose of this study was to investigate Korean pediatric patients' color preferences for patient room design. The color preferences from 50 Korean pediatric patients were recorded and investigated for gender effects. A simulation method was used because of its reliability and feasibility, allowing for investigating the value of color in real contexts and controlling confounding variables. The overall color preferences from Korean pediatric patients showed that they preferred blue the most and white the least. Gender differences were found in red and purple. Girls preferred red and purple more than boys. The results from this study can help healthcare providers and designers better understand appropriate colors for Korean pediatric patient populations.
