    Abstract PDF
    Purpose: The aim of this paper is to reduce the stress and the disturbance occur in selective action of patient. This article will also help us to control spreading and reduce the order and bacteria produced by leprosy disease among the lepers. This will be achieved with the help of several variables and these variables help us on health benefits is 5S (Sort, Straighten, Shine, Standardize, Sustain) i.e. ratio of sectional morphology, lessor 90 degree angles, day light, universal design building and maximum ventilation. The replies from the questionnaire were collected based on varying levels of satisfaction and gloominess on the scale of 1-10. Methods: The multi-layer methodological framework for maximising the healing environment obtained from the observation of schemes and parameters of ANOVA: (Analysis Of Variance between five deciding factors) are. Firstly applied for the calculation of the patient’s satisfaction for U.V light from sun on ECOTECT simulation, secondly the number of 90˚angle, along the corridors. Thirdly understanding the ways to represent people’s perceptual structures and way finding with Space Syntax software. Fourthly the ratio of depth to height of the building typology and finally interviewing the subjects describing their spacial experiences based on scale value. The focus of this testing of human subjects was to receive data for the existence of image scheme in way-finding and to identify the mechanisms by which sun light impacts human (lepers) health. Results: ANOVA studies concluded that there is similarity between I and O plan as well as L and H plan whereas U plan was difference among the five selected architectural shapes. Implications: The purpose of this research is to show the effects of the I-type, L-type, C-type, U- type and O- type plan design, and to analyse the morphology for EBD (Evidence-Based Design) healing environment which is a universal design for Munghopir Karachi, in Pakistan.

    A Study on Designation and Management of Seoul-Type Elderly Care Facilities

    김석준 | 2013, 19(4) | pp.19~28 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Purpose: The purpose of this study to assess long-term care facilities in Seoul and certificate Seoultype elderly care facilities. After certification, Seoul city can provide certificated facilities with budget and support to improve service quality. Methods: Questionnaires to elderly care facilities experts and field surveys to facilities in Seoul have been conducted for the data collection. Results: The result of this study can be summarized into three points. The first one is that a direction of operation for Seoultype elderly care facilities is to improve manpower and provide special program for enforcing quality assurance. The second one is that this study provide index of evaluation for Seoul-type elderly care facilities. The indexes include management, facility environment and safety, service delivery process,and service results. The third one is that management plan for this policy should be carried out. The management plan include demonstration project, opinion research. Implications: Seoul-type elderly care facilities can have positive effects on quality of service. For the introduction of this policy, Seoul city and autonomous Gu have to make careful preparations for this policy.

    A Study on the Healthcare Facility System for Mental Health

    이현지 , Chai, Choul Gyun | 2013, 19(4) | pp.29~36 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract PDF
    Purpose: Currently meaning and the needs of the times for the mental health are extensively changing. Contemporary needs for mental health has led to a change in the mental health policy and mental health facilities. But Change on Most of the mental health facilities have been focused on quantitative increase. So, changes in mental health facilities due to changes in mental health policy are needed for the study. This study investigate to the mental health facility system through this changes. Methods: In order to determine the flow of Mental health policy in Korea the mental health laws and reports were investigated. Results: The result of this study can be summarized into two points. Korea's mental health policy has changed from the rehabilitation of the mentally ill to the prophylaxis of all the people. So, mental health facilities are changing form rehabilitation facilities in the private sector to public mental health center. Especially, mental medical institutions and mental health center are changing to requirement for the needs of the times. Mental medical institutions are changing from inpatient to outpatient and mental health center are changing from the rehabilitation of the mentally ill to the prophylaxis of all the people. Implications: Understand the flow of mental health policy, mental health facilities and the corresponding need.

    A Study on the Sectoral Configuration and Use Characteristics of Mental Health Center - Focused on Standard Mental Health Center in Seoul

    Lim, Yenjung , Chai, Choul Gyun | 2013, 19(4) | pp.37~45 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    Purpose: With the rapid development of technology and individual life styles, Korea faces everincreasing mental diseases caused by divorce, suicide, alcohol, drug addiction, and internet addiction. To reflect this, the quantitative expansion of mental health centers that make up is time. The purpose of this study is to understand the current situation of standard mental health centers by analysing Seoul's cases of mental health. First, this study presents the direction of mental health policy through specific examples about the function of public and private sectors. Second, advantages and disadvantages of the facilities will be delineated through in-depth comparisons and analyses, ultimately providing architectural guidelines for establishing future standard mental health center. Methods: Data were collected through literature research, field surveys, and expert interviews to standard mental health centers in Seoul. In the field investigation, we collected various data(architectural plan, dimension,photos) by visiting standard mental health centers. Data were analysed by content analysis. Results:The result of this study can be summarized into three points. The first one is that Mental health environment changes, and the function of the mental health centers are also being asked to change in Korea. The changing role of the mental health center is derived the spatial variations. The second one is that Standard Mental Health Center is divided into four sectors. Implications: It is necessary to give and architectural suggestion of mental health center in response to the proposal of the system.

    A Study of Vertical Circulation System in General Hospitals by Using Space Syntax

    Lee, Hyunjin , Park,Jae-Seung | 2013, 19(4) | pp.47~60 | number of Cited : 6
    Abstract PDF
    Purpose: This study examines construction core plans for the users of vertical-typed general hospitals to effectively use the flow line. Methods: The study sampled representative 9 hospitals, calculated the depth value through Convex Map of Space Syntax and Justified Graph according to the determination of form of construction core, and analyzed its functional connectivity. Results: The analysis of the connectivity between operation core part and emergency part of core space with high importance in the hospitals showed that the types of <Sev> hospital and <Ajoumc> hospital have the lowest depth value in the spatial phase diagram, where central treatment part and outpatient part are arranged well vertically. Elevators for patients at these hospitals are close to operation and emergency parts actually separated from the elevators for passengers. For shortening of flow line of patients and private movement environment, however, it is desirable to arrange the elevators for patients to be adjacent to the operation parts and to arrange the emergent patient entrances more effectivly to separate them from the flow line of visitors and guardians. Implications: Consideration should be taken into account for the effective flow line design. This study hopefully may serve as a stepping stone for the standard design of horizontal/vertical flow line
