Patients assaulted by Noise

Monday, October 24th, 2011

In a great in depth study by Herman Milller the effect of noise on patients healthcare is surprisingly interesting and bothersome. Interesting in how much noise actually effects the mental and physical health driving home the point we have been blogging about again and again, that noise is a real pollution. And bothersome due to the fact as to how far technology in the health care sector has come and yet this simple idea of constructing sound proof rooms is largely ignored. One of the reasons is because a proper soundproofing company needs to be contacted before the construction and rehab of any health care facility. Hopefully the above mentioned article will bring us a step closer to getting it done the correct way.
