Hospitals can be busy, noisy places potentially creating an uncomfortable environment not only for patients, but also for staff and visitors. Interior design in hospitals, as in many medical and health care facilities, is influenced by the general design trends in all modern commercial buildings. Current modern trends include the use of lots of glass, stone and other hard surfaces on walls, floors and furniture. The result of this is the potential for reverberation, or reflected sound, intruding into the lives of many people in these facilities.
Wards are not the only areas in health facilities that can suffer from noise problems. Critical noisy areas in hospitals include consulting and waiting rooms. If these areas have hard surfaces with many people coming and going, constant movement and clatter can make it difficult for medical staff or receptionists to hear what the visitors are saying clearly.
Reducing Noise In Hospital's
Some of the solutions that have been undertaken to resolve this problem were implementing ear plugs, noise warning systems, acoustic treatment panels, educational initiatives and noise reduction protocols. The most effective method was proven to be acoustic treatment panels.
By installing sound absorbing acoustic panels such as Serenity and Sonofonic Panels, manufactured by SONTEXT, noise reflected off walls and ceilings can be reduced significantly. As well as efficiently absorbing reflected sound waves, Sontext Serenity and Sonofonic panels are fire rated, and can be vacuumed or cleaned with mild detergents, so a clean healthy environment can be maintained.
