Abstract

The purpose of the present study is to determine which aspects of the patient rooms considered important to their inpatients and visitors experience that fit to cultural preference of the users. We sent the questionnaires to 125 people in Bangkok and in its surrounding areas. We asks those respondents to rate the 9 (nine) items that related to the patient's room and visit activities to the patient on a scale from 1 (very unimportant) to 5 (very important). These items are related to the visiting activities for the patients (2 items of questions) and 7 items related to aspects of the patient's room (room / space, a special area, furniture, layout, color, room accessories, and artwork). The other item is an open question about the most important factor in the patient's interior space. From the overall questionnaires distributed, 92.8% are eligible to be analysed. The analysis shows that two aspects of the patient's room which have the highest average value is the overall patient room (4.07) and a special area for visitors (4.07). Both are followed by lay out (4.00), color space aspects (3.99), furniture (3.83), and room accessories (3.64). The respondents considered that the artworks are not too important compared to the other interior elements so that the average value is in the last rank, namely 3.58. Thus we concluded that in the perspective of Thai society, three main things in relation to the activity of the patient visits are (1) the design of patients’ space that not only accommodate patient care activities, but also the activity of social interaction. (2) The need of a special area for social interaction between visitors and patients in patient space that becomes crucial, and (3) an efficient layout arrangement that supports visiting patient activities without reducing the control to the patients against their needs for privacy.
