summary This research design aims to understand medication delivery behavior under different spatial configurations through the virtualization of Intensive Care Unit (ICU) environments. Architectural visualization using virtual reality is used to demonstrate capabilities in capturing experiential data. Three different Intensive Care Unit floor plans were modeled and presented in 3D virtual environments. Tasks were developed to simulate nurses’ activities during medication delivery to be analyzed for variables thought to affect nurse efficiency, nurse effectiveness, and satisfaction.
