Medical-Architectural Program for the Design of Safe Hospitals


This Peruvian publication is presented in the framework of the World Disaster Reduction Campaign 2008-2009: “Hospitals Safe from Disasters” with the aim of placing within the reach of health service operators a tool for the design of a medical-architectural program which contributes to the improvement of the quality of care and the reduction of hospital functional vulnerability.

The publication contains 21 chapters, the first two of which approach general concepts of planning and design which any health service worker must know. In the following chapters, each one of the main functional units which can be implemented depending on the guiding master plan, are described.
