Improving acoustics in hospitals
Poor acoustics in a hospital affect the health and recovery of patients and the well-being of the people who work there. Good acoustics in a hospital are essential. Sound disturbance can affect patients' rest and sleep and causes fatigue among nurses, doctors and other care workers. Acoustic challenges:
Very low reverberation time;
Reduced sound level;
What is the advantage of good acoustics in hospitals?
We often see acoustic problems around and in corridors, waiting rooms, counters, operating rooms, accommodation and the hospital restaurant. Rooms in hospitals are often designed from a hygienic and practical point of view and therefore lack cushioning materials. The right acoustic facilities for each room can be very beneficial within a hospital for the following:
Faster recovery from better sleep
Noise is bad for the mood. Processing stimuli costs a lot of energy and is tiring. Research shows that good acoustics lead to better sleep and thus a chance of faster healing.
Safe and quiet environment
Disturbing noise can lead to confusing, stressful and anxious situations. Good acoustics promote overview and improve the state of mind of patients and staff.
Healthier and better performing staff
Good acoustics also lead to less stress and fatigue for care workers, it also leads to better performance and focus and is therefore very important in the execution of care and operations.
Optimal speech intelligibility is important for communication. In conversation with a colleague or caretaker, good understanding should not be an effort.
