Childrens’ recovery room, Randers Hospital

The childrens’ recovery room in Randers Hospital features a large screen for mood projection. As a child awakens from anaesthesia, a video of the sun rising is displayed and the lighting in the room is slowly increased. When the child is more awake, they may choose relaxing moods featuring baby animals from around the world. This helps to distract the child from their discomforts and acts as a catalyst for conversation between the caregivers and the child. The inclusion of controlled lighting creates a soothing atmosphere of safety for everyone.
