The Benefits of Hotel-Like Recovery Rooms
The thought of spending any amount of time in the hospital, let alone following a surgical procedure, is often more than a little dread-inducing. While hospitals and doctor’s offices are the locations for quality medical care and healing, the sterile, unnatural environment makes even routine check ups intimidating and stressful. In recent years, numerous studies have narrowed down plenty of ways that a hospital may become more conducive to positive outcomes and reduced recovery time. The most common solution? Make the hospital more like a hotel.
At Pearl Recovery Retreat, we have extensive experience in helping surgery patients recover in a comfortable, relaxing environment and we have seen, first-hand, the positive results.
Why Hotel Amenities are Important for Recovery
In recent years, a number of studies have been released in which hotel-like amenities, such as private rooms, gourmet meals, and even music can greatly improve a patient’s physical recovery, as well as his/her emotional and psychological well-being following treatment. Typically, hospitals are bustling with activity, patients are frequently moved in and out of shared rooms, all while harsh fluorescent lights remain on throughout the night. It is no surprise that such a tense, utilitarian atmosphere can take away from a patient’s ability to heal.
Pearl Recovery Retreat is located within a private wing of the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, where patients can be picked up from their hospital after surgery and taken to the quiet luxury of their own hotel room. Whether a patient has undergone bariatric surgery, cosmetic surgery, or breast augmentation, our facility has the medical team to ensure that each patient’s health is monitored and attended to by a professional.
According to research involving one of the newly redesigned intensive care units in the McGill University hospital of Montreal, bacterial infections among patients decreased by at least 50 percent when patients were moved to private rooms. Additionally, patients were able to recover in at least 10 percent less time thanks to the move as well.
Another study, conducted by a professor at the Center for Healthcare Architecture at Chalmers University of Sweden, Roger Ulrich, concluded that even having a window with a view of a natural setting was more conducive to quicker recoveries, better hospital evaluations, and fewer medications than patients who had a window view of a bare wall.
