In January, AIA Columbus hosted Kimberly McMurray, AIA, of Behavioral Health Facility Consulting LLC and Philip Ross of Safehinge Primera for a presentation on building a safe behavioral health environment of care. These two internationally known leaders are working to advance the design of mental and behavioral health facilities. The session focused on assessing ligature risk in the physical environment and what to do about identified risks considering regulatory changes in recent years. Attendees were also able to test out a model of the Safehinge behavioral health patient room door hardware that received a Nightingale Award at the 2022 Healthcare Design Conference.
