Health. Welfare. People. Lighting for hospitals should consider these 3 aspects. That was evident last Tuesday in the Lighting in the hospital sector meeting, held at the facilities of modernist building of Hospital de Sant Pau (Barcelona).
Among other things, the therapeutic effect of light on people was highlighted. Because, for a hospital or health care facility, efficiency (consumption and maintenance) of the luminaires is important, but above all they should be user needs / patient.
Studies in hospitals have found that with proper light, patients slept longer and better, down the depression index and relapse and recovery times were shorter.
Therefore, you should make a study of lighting and establish adequate lighting for every space.
