The 2009 edition of the Life Safety Code (LSC) deleted the need for windows and/or doors exposing the outside environment in a patient sleeping room. Does that mean that patient sleeping rooms should be designed without windows?

Although, the current LSC code no longer requires access or direct visibility to the outside, the design of new hospital patient sleeping rooms should still be designed with visibility to the outside world. Many local building codes and state agencies overseeing hospital development require windows in patient sleeping rooms. Plus, there is a significant amount of evidence that human beings have a psychological need to see the outside and that aids in the healing process.
