2022 Stronger - P129 - The Recharge Room: Decompress in a Multisensory, Peaceful Space - On Demand

Hospitals cared for record numbers of patients throughout the pandemic. Trauma, exhaustion and burnout resulted in a need for space and resources to allow workers to decompress safely and confidentially. Indications are that recharge rooms improve employee health and well-being, yet little has been done in this area until UCHealth implemented its Recharge Room in 2021. This space integrates immersive, multisensory experiences to reduce stress and provide real-time emotional support for employees. Using a stress continuum, more than 1,400 surveys in the first six months show significant improvement in acute employee well-being.

Target Audience

  • Nurses
  • Physicians
  • Other Healthcare Professionals
