Abstract: Among the hospital departments, outpatient department should be the one where many patients could wander from the right path. The purpose of this study is to find out the guidelines for the planning of the safe and comfortable way-finding environment for the outpatient department. First, 190 Japanese hospitals built after 1985 with 300 or more beds were classified by the space components of the outpatient department from the way-finding design point of view. Next, comparative analysis was made on the information signs for the patients at 5 hospitals. These 5 hospitals had different kinds of space components. It was found that the visual acknowledgment by the patients heavily depends on the amount of information gathered from the space components as well as from the information signs. Therefore, by the good utilization of such space elements as light court and well space, we could reduce the stray patients even with less number of information signs.
