It has been proven that exposure to sufficient levels of lighting in healthcare facilities has a strong positive impact on all aspects of the patient experience—aiding in wayfinding, improving moods and promoting comfort, wellness and healing. But lighting has its benefits for healthcare staff as well. It has been found to increase satisfaction levels in the work environment, improve staff moods and decrease the potential for medical errors.
