One simple but highly important factor when creating a patient room whiteboard is sizing. How large (or small) can the whiteboard be for it to act as an effective communication tool? While standard sizes are available, custom sizing can be manufactured, eliminating most of the sizing limitations that might be faced when choosing the right dry erase board for a room. Even with the sizing limitations lifted, there generally will be an “ideal size” for a whiteboard based on the room’s layout and design.
When sizing a whiteboard for your facility, begin with these design and treatment considerations.
