Patient Unit D-2 Improvements
The Ohio Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services (OMHAS) engaged Hasenstab Architects to provide design services for renovations and upgrades at their Heartland Behavioral Health campus. The first phase of this multi-phased effort encompassed improvements for Patient Unit D-2.
Design services started with reviewing and selecting specialized behavioral healthcare products to be used for a total renovation of patient bathrooms. Door hardware, plumbing fixtures, grab bars and toilet accessories were upgraded to current anti-ligature products to provide a more safe and secure environment.
Upgrades to Unit D-2 also included renovations to the day room and nurse station, as well as the medication room, staff work areas and a consultation room.
Subsequent project phases include renovating nurse stations, staff work areas and patient bathrooms within five additional units.
