Modern society attaches increasingly greater importance to good health and its maintenance. This trend is reflected also by the constantly growing demand for good health and this development calls for new requirements on lighting in hospitals. The number of people who need care is set to rise sharply in future years in most countries. Confronted with this new situation, hospitals and care facilities now face the task of upgrading their capacities and standards to meet state-of-the-art demands. It is proven that lighting has effects on patient’s health and although simply having the right lighting can’t work wonders, it can bring about decisive improvements. When light is used intelligently, work processes not only become safer and more reliable. Using light intelligently also significantly improves doctors’ and care staff’s capacity for work.
