A key renovation & humanization of Pediatric Protected Unit in CHU Bordeaux. Children going through a bone marrow transplantation or very intensive chemotherapy experience "extreme conditions" during their hospital stay. These rooms provide the required antimicrobial protection. However, hospital stays in such extreme conditions are very painful, as "carceral".The following project is meant to completely rethink the Protected Unit same level of antimicrobial protection while letting life in.
These Children experience "extreme conditions" during their hospital stay: Separation from home/ Prolonged stay (several weeks)/ Draconian antimicrobial isolation in a room /Accommodation reduced to functionality (cramped, lighting, lack of comfort)/ Life under constant threat (unthinkable at this age). These rooms fully provide the required antimicrobial protection. However hospital stays in such extreme conditions are very painful, and even experienced as "carceral", for children and families.
Project is meant to completely rethink the Protected Unit in order to ensure same level of antimicrobial protection while "letting life in": Room of sufficient size/ Health equipment/ Natural lighting/ Possibility of access to a room to play or relax. This project has been designed along with children and families, with the commitment of the hospital and of health care staff.
In addition to improving comfort during their stay, the object to give them the opportunity to recharge their batteries, develop their autonomy and think about their future.
