Hospital Noise - Quick Leonard Kieffer

quickleonardkieffer.com [cached]

According to Gary Madaras, the director of Making Hospitals Quiet, the real goal is to create "the right ratio of good to bad noise."
A unique mix of professionals, including electronic musicians, healthcare providers, researchers, and acousticians, is invested in the goal of making the hospital experience quieter for the sake of patients. Some organizations like Dignity Health have created their own internal teams to assess and improve noise; others are taking advantage of consultancies that specialize in "soundscaping" hospitals, such as Madaras's. Madaras of Making Hospitals Quiet believes that one of the most important, and difficult, areas to focus on is behavioral changes, which are embedded in culture and hospital policies and procedures. He points out the dichotomy between active and passive care - active care describing medications, procedures, etc., while passive care is leaving patients alone so that they can sleep and heal - and the importance of both. Through his consulting engagements, he works with clients to rearrange care routines, after having found that many times, it is rare for a patient to have even 45 minutes at a time through the night that someone was not entering their room.
