Medical - Medical (general) / Psychiatric Hospital Layout
German term or phrase: P- bzw. HP-Zimmer
"Ein Teil der Zimmer, die Aufenthaltsräume, die gemeinsamen Räume, die Therapieräume und die Nasszellen sind rollstuhlgängig und behindertengerecht.

Die ***P- bzw. HP-Zimmer*** sind 12 m2 bzw. 17 m2 gross, oder grösser."

Describing the accomodation area of some sort of psychiatric hospital or ward. I haven't got the slightest idea what is meant by "P- bzw. HP-Zimmer". Well obviously, I can work out the Zimmer bit, but "P- bzw. HP"??? TIA for any light you can shed.
