This paper describes the causes of the wayfinding problems in hospitals and suggests ways to solve them. The paper is by and large based on the author’s personal experience and observations. Several causes make wayfinding in hospitals difficult. One group of causes concerns the complicated environment. Another group of causes concerns the users, a broad group out of which several constituents have reduced sight, mental and other capacities. The combination of a complicated environment and possibly weak wayfinders calls for carefully planned wayshowing.
