I was wondering if the USGBC has provided any guidance regarding calculating the FTE/Transients/Visitors, etc for a hospital. Should patients be partial FTEs or visitors? Does it depend on the kind of patient that they are (outpatient vs inpatient)? Do any of the hospital FTE, such as inpatients have to be residential FTE? Is there guidance in LEED for Healthcare? Our project is registered under LEEDv2.2.
Mara: perhaps you have a good idea from your hospital experience?
Thank you!
