Emergency Department Design: A Practical Guide to Planning for the Future, second edition, is a one-of-a-kind resource written by the nation's foremost authority on emergency department design and published by the world's largest emergency medicine organization. It explains the architectural design process specific to emergency departments and teaches emergency physicians, nurses, hospital administrators, and other health care providers how to prepare and lead a design team. The book presents the design process in sequence, from needs assessment through scope definition and design to the finished product, pointing out potential pitfalls and special considerations along the way. Chapters include checklists and worksheets and hundreds of drawings and floorplans to support the planning process. Special design considerations are covered in detail, including pediatric and geriatric emergency departments, freestanding emergency centers, safety and security measures, lean design, and much more. The foundation of all the recommendations is patient care and how it can best be delivered according to the needs of the community -- and not according to a "cookie cutter" or standardized design. The second part of the book comprises 27 case studies – all designed to solve specific problems and meet specific needs, such as behavioral health, historic preservation, lean processing, “no wait,” overcrowding, physician-directed patient flow, privacy, surge capacity, threat mitigation, wayfinding, and more.

About the Author

Jon Huddy, AIA, as of the publishing of this book, has participated in the analysis, planning, and design of more than 325 emergency departments ... and counting. His emergency department design experience includes projects across the United States, Canada, South America, and Europe. While an architect by training, his emergency department design experience includes a deep understanding of strategic planning, technology integration and how the physical environment can be shaped to support lean operations; allow for efficient staffing and provider coverage; keep the staff and patients safe; and help deliver successful outcomes that result in elevated patient and staff satisfaction scores. His designs have accommodated emergency departments as small as 6,000 annual visits in rural areas and complex medical center emergency departments as large as 200,000 visits. One of his greatest attributes is the ability to bring alternative operational and physical design solutions to his clients by drawing on his international emergency department design experience. As president of Huddy HealthCare Solutions, LLC, a firm focused on the specialty of emergency department consulting and design, he personally leads each emergency department engagement, whether it be for emergency department strategic planning, operational assessment, master planning, and/or architectural design services. Mr. Huddy has been designing health care facilities since earning a Master of Architecture degree from the Clemson University Architecture for Health Studio in the mid-1980s. He also completed the American Institute of Architects/American Hospital Association Graduate Fellowship in Health Facility Design. Since the early 1990s, Mr. Huddy has focused on the specialty of emergency department consulting and design and has teamed with hundreds of hospitals, physician groups, architects, and builders to deliver successful emergency department design solutions. Mr. Huddy is a member of the American Institute of Architects and is licensed by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards. He has written several articles and delivered numerous international presentations and educational sessions on a wide range of topics, including "ED Vision 2030," "Designing More (ED) with Less (Capital)," and "Designing Safe and Secure Emergency Departments." Many of the items and issues from these presentations are presented in this book. His audiences have included the: • American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP, US) • American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE, US) • American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE, US) • Center for Health Design (CHD, US) • Emergency Nurses Association (ENA, US) • European Society of Emergency Nurses (EuSEN) • Health Estates&Facilities Management Association (HefmA, UK) • Institute of Healthcare Engineering and Estate Management (IHEEM, UK) • National Ergonomics Conference (US) • Scottish Health Conference (UK) • Health and Care Infrastructure Research and Innovation Centre (HaCIRIC, UK) • International Emergency Department Leadership Institute (IEDLI) "Huddy," as he has been known since grade school, brings a passion for emergency department design, a commitment to including caregivers throughout the design process, and a humorous, energetic presentation style that has allowed him to develop close and lasting relationships with emergency department caregivers around the world. His unique insights, depth of experience, and impressive track record of successful emergency department design projects are the building blocks from which he has written this text. Huddy is very interested in hearing about your unique design solutions to the challenges you face in creating your emergency department of the future.
