The article reports on an increase which has been seen in the number of Australian hospitals that have decreased the number of shared patient rooms and have opted for single patient rooms in their ward designs. A discussion of support for single occupancy rooms which has been voiced by clinicians and patients, and of the role that single occupancy rooms can play in infection control, is presented.
