Hospitals can sometimes be one of the busiest places in any city. There are tons of different staff coming and going every day and many patients new and current. High-quality, clear, and concise signage must be used throughout the property as there are so many moving parts, things can become confusing.
Throughout your hospital grounds, having signs that show patients which part of the hospital they are in can help keep them from wasting time before an appointment. You can use wayfinding signs in the parking lot to ensure that people know where to go and keep them out of places that they shouldn’t enter. As there are sometimes restricted areas on the grounds of a hospital, using signs that stay illuminated at all times of day will ensure visitors’ safety.
Wayfinding signs don’t only need to be used outdoors, but also inside. Hospitals can sometimes be a maze of offices and labs, so you want patients to know precisely where they are and where they need to go. These will include directional signs that denote clearly where restrooms, receptions, and cafeterias are located. You can also put in arrows and different icons to accompany any written cues. As staff and patients’ health and safety are crucial in these facilities, ensuring everyone is where they need to be guarantees a smooth-running operation.
