A sensory room, is a place where the patient can relax and recover away from busy surroundings, when the patient is vulnerable. The audiovisual themes is based on years of research and feedback from patients in different medical procedures. The main purpose is to create a secure environment for both patient and staff. In the past two years we have installed more that thirty sensory rooms inside danish psychiatric hospitals and the preliminary feedback is very positive and we are now investigating further. Until now the usage of the rooms has indicated:
Patients with excessive thoughts get relaxed more easily in the sensory room
Better interaction and communication between patient and staff
Diverse staff groups use the acute room
The patient obtains natural sleep in the sensory room
De-escalation of conflict level
A reduction in forced isolation
Works across linguistic and cultural barriers
A new way to communicate with the patient
