The design of health care environments can affect safety. Conducted in one intensive care unit (ICU) in Sweden, this study did not identify any difference in adverse events such as healthcare-acquired infections or unplanned reintubation occurring in regular ICU rooms, as compared to refurbished rooms (e.g., acoustic panels, cyclic lighting, accessible patio).
