Discussion: Leverage principles of sustainable health care

How would you leverage principles of sustainable health care, Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED), “green” design, etc., when designing or renovating an existing health care facility?

Reading for this question is below:

The topics and objectives for Week Five focus on future trends in health care. The desired outcome is a comprehensive understanding of what impact the trends have on future designs in an iterative process. The trend areas include, but are not limited to, technology, cultural and generational needs and demands, global health care facility design, and the effect of design on health care personnel. Learners should be able to demonstrate, analyze, synthesize, and evaluate health care facility requirements by integrating concepts from prior academic weeks. Architecture reflects a society’s values, philosophical outlook, and changing directions in technology. Design teams are beginning to use evidence-based design to create creative environments based on research. They are using critical thinking skills to develop appropriate solutions to design problems.

ORDER NOW FOR CUSTOMIZED, PLAGIARISM-FREE PAPERS

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
