  14. 14. First Planetree Model “ At Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco an important new experiment is taking place influenced by the experience of Norman Cousins. Planetree, an organization dedicated to humanize health care, is restructuring a hospital nursing unit physically, socially, and organizationally to increase the control patients have over their own health and to reduce the traditional hierarchical attitudes of staff.”
  15. 15. First Planetree Model “ To reinforce these changes the physical form of the nursing station was altered. The nurses are no longer separated from patients and families by a high counter. Instead the workspace is opened up, making charts available to patients and families as well as to physicians and nurses. To motivate patients to greater mobility and personal control, a lounge has been located directly adjacent to patients' beds.” Families will be encouraged to participate in patient care. There is a place for them to stay overnight, and even a small kitchen has been constructed so that patients can have their own favorite foods on their own schedules.”

  18. 18. To personalize and deinstitutionalize the environment and create a more familiar and relaxed atmosphere, careful attention has been given to the quality of light, the use of natural woods, and the selection of paintings, plants, and fabrics.
