Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HCT) recipients should be accommodated for at least 2-3 weeks in a protective environment with high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters. Amenity is very important for the recipients who have to overcome hard condition, and comfortability during transplantation highly depends on equipment of isolated rooms. To minimize the inconvenience of recipients, several elaborating equipment is required, however, detailed information for design drawing of isolated rooms is rarely available. Thus, to newly establish two units of isolated rooms in our hospital, we visited four institutions and conducted an interview with staffs and patients/parents, for satisfied/dissatisfied points of the isolated rooms of each hospital. Based on the collected information, we established isolated rooms “kind-hearted” for both patients and medical staffs. We here share our design drawings for the isolated rooms with multiple ingenuity, which could contribute for basic information to newly establish isolation rooms.
