Lesson Learned/Best Practice
Planning books should thoroughly describe the type of space that is included in the scope of the project i.e. Is the Major OR either Ortho or Neuro not just a Major OR. Is the ICU regular ICU or Neuro ICU etc. The equipment needed to support each of these spaces is quite different and has a big impact from a budgeting standpoint.
Suggested Actions for Future Projects
The planning books should be as detailed as possible when describing the type of space included in the scope of the project. This will save time on the ME Managers part and eliminate the need to seek clarification from planning.
