Though caregiver and patient may share the same facility for a while, their perspectives and experiences differ greatly. Medical staff, although in familiar surroundings, are expected to provide a steady, compassionate hand under consistently demanding and stressful conditions. Patients and visitors pass through for stays short or long, in unfamiliar places, and with varying degrees of discomfort or anxiety. Thoughtful lighting promotes a sense of wellbeing, thus increasing the probability for positive outcomes. At Acuity Brands®, our objective is to help healthcare facilities create environments aligned with the goals of patient, caregiver, and staff — one that goes hand in hand with a journey of hope and healing.
