In this project, we will develop a prototype incorporating elements of nature for the waiting area in the department of Orthopedic Surgery at Universitetshospital Sjælland, Køge, to test if it improves the patients’ and their relatives’ experience of atmosphere; likewise, we will test if it is possible to make an intended atmosphere.
The project applies the phenomenological approach to science, since the project is concerned with the individual’s experience of atmosphere of the waiting area. The methodological approach of the project is based on a qualitative interview survey, where we conduct interviews before- and after the setup of the prototype in the waiting area. We will compare and discuss the results of the interviews, in which we will assess whether the prototype has given the intended positive effect. The prototype consists of four movable wall partitions with elements of nature, and will be placed in certain areas in the waiting area. According to our findings, not only is it possible to make an intended atmosphere, but natural elements do have a relaxing effect for patients and their relatives.
