The last initiative of the "Pinocchio Project" is a complete restyle of the CT Scan room in the Regina Margherita Hospital, transformed into a colorful and welcoming forest.
The CT Scan room of the Regina Margherita Hospital has just been completed, funded by DiaSorin along with Rotary, Rotaract and Turin Inner Wheel. The initiative is part of the "Pinocchio Project", which was launched in 2014 in three Piedmont hospital sections with the aim of supporting the little patients in all the areas of their everyday life: from school education to diagnostic tasks.
The room dedicated to one of the most annoying tests for children has been therefore transformed into a colorful and welcoming forest, thanks to the use of sophisticated films placed on the machines. With remarkable results, there was a 30% decrease of cases where sedation was needed for the radiological procedure.
An action that is in line with the most current trends in the design of hospital environments, increasingly targeted at the humanization of the various wards through colors. Recent studies have revealed that using bright colors, alleviates the sense of insomnia and instability in patients, helping them to maintain a positive attitude. Therefore, the white and aseptic spaces of the past are increasingly being replaced by welcoming and pleasing structures where a clever use of chromatic lights and contrasts facilitates orientation between various rooms and contributes to spreading wellbeing.
Because there are many ways to take care of people. DiaSorin, with the support of projects like this, shows that they know how to keep in mind everyone.
