Accessible Examination Room


An accessible exam room is the space where a patient will receive proper medical care. The room allows the patient with a mobility disability to enter, move around and be examined.  Some things to keep in mind:

  • The route to and in the room is accessible with clear floor and turning space.
  • The floor space on either side of the exam table should be a minimum of 30 inches by 48 inches.  This allows room for transfers from a wheelchair. 
  • Additional space may be required to maneuver a portable patient lift or stretcher into position.
