A question often faced by many providers, is whether to use an LDR or an LDRP model for their obstetric service. Since the answer to this question is not obvious, Trinity has performed a study evaluating the impact of LDR vs. LDRP services for different size obstetric services. This study considers the impact of both models with regards to area, initial capital expense, ongoing operating expense, staffing considerations and patient expectations.
Some design considerations include:
- "Sense of entry" to the facility.
- Wayfinding for obstetric patients and family members.
- Consumer sensitivity in the obstetric market.
- Impact of related Women's Health programs, such as education, Perinatal Services and high-risk Antepartum Services.
- Effective triage facilities for laboring patients.
- Effective pre-procedure preparation facilities for scheduled C-sections.
- Minimizing impact of false labors and unscheduled C-sections on operations and LDR/LDRP facilities.
- Retail opportunities for obstetric patients and visitors. Maximizing utilization of operating (C-section) rooms.
