I am editing a book about taking care of elderly people.
Imagine the charge (person that is being taken care of) lives in a room sketched below and spends most of their time in the bed.
In case of an emergency, first responders must get from the entrance into the room, put the charge on a strechter, and carry them out (arrows from the entrance to the room and backwards).
How can I estimate
- how wide the hallway must be (Y in the drawing) and
- at what distance from the wall the bed must be located (X in the drawing)
so that first responders can get in and out of the room with a stretcher (incl. the room that is required when you turn the stretcher when carrying out the charge)?
