Abstract: 
Before undertaking a hospital or clinic renovation project, "expert" opinions are usually gathered from architects, administrators, trustees, etc., but what about the opinions of those who will be most directly affected--the staff and the patients? This article talks about a study, funded by the Regenstrief Institute, which investigated the benefits to be gained by asking questions of that often-ignored group.
