It has been an almost magical meeting with your administrator. You have been invited to meet with the architects and space planners next week, not to discuss a new clinical area and the required medical technology, but to discuss space and design for a new clinical engineering department and biomed shop space.
Unfortunately, more often than not, the bubble bursts fairly quickly when during the space planning meeting you are asked dozens of questions about what you do, how you do it, what space you need, why, where are the standards, etc. Unlike most other hospital areas, there is no set state or federal standards for square footage for clinical engineering (or facility engineering) support services.
