Treating Noise Complaints at Their Source
For patients and families dealing with medical problems, there are few times when peace and quiet will be as important as in the hospital. Recently, studies have shown the negative effects that noise has on patient recovery. The findings were frightening, but with the right solutions, the prognosis is promising.
Headwalls, the wall area at the head of patient room beds in hospitals, are covered with medical equipment so hospital staff has easy access. In addition, the headwalls typically have many recessed electrical outlets, medical gas piping and data conduits – all of which are holes in the wall that easily let sound through. The common use of repeated-and-flipped floor plans (a.k.a. cookie cutter plans) result in these outlets being back-to-back, the worst possible condition for sound control.
Fortunately, the solutions can be easy and inexpensive. Our products can seal a number of sound flanking paths, lessening the sound that travels between rooms and floors and bringing patients and families the peace, privacy and quiet they need to recuperate.
