For improving access to hospital inpatient and outpatient care for people with ME/CFS, see recommendation 1.8.1.
1.8.4 Discuss with people who need inpatient care whether any aspects of where their care will be provided could cause problems for them, including:
- where a bed is situated on a ward (if possible, aim to provide a single room)
- the accessibility of toilets and washrooms
- environmental factors such as lighting, sound, heating and smells.
