Abstract

Since it is inevitable that many people will die in hospitals it is important to ensure that facilities, procedures, policies and staffing are arranged in ways that respect the needs of patients and families. The purpose of this review is to gather the evidence on how design and configuration of facilities can be supportive to dignity and privacy around death in hospital, and to determine if in fact these improvements are cost-effective and produce a positive return on the investment.
