Doctor examining her patient

There are three factors you need to consider in order to achieve a good sound environment in healthcare premises:

  • Make room for recovery – by maintaining low sound levels
  • Ensure rooms support communication – by focusing on speech clarity
  • Increase privacy - by reducing sound propagation

If you achieve this, there will be many benefits for both patients and staff:

  • Lowered blood pressure
  • Improved quality of sleep
  • Reduced intake of pain medication
  • Improved communication
  • Lowered stress levels
  • Improved patient safety
  • Enhanced staff wellbeing, performance and job satisfaction
