With new light sources, sustainable design trends, control options, and the recent understanding of how light impacts human health, effective lighting design not only positively impacts facilities' aesthetics goals, but also their bottom line. Lighting can impact attraction of patients and staff, reduce demands on an over-stretched staff, improve patient outcomes, reduce maintenance and operating costs, and increase patient satisfaction in this increasingly competitive healthcare climate. But effective lighting must also address patient and staff visual needs, special room construction restrictions, infection control concerns, and patient safety issues. Creating pleasant spaces that function in demanding healthcare environments can be a delicate balancing act.
