"Hospital noise levels are far too high internationally, and this has been known for decades," said Roger Ulrich, a professor of architecture at Texas A&M University.

Such noisiness causes patients to lose sleep, have higher blood pressure and may make them more likely to be readmitted, he says.
According to a study by Ulrich, heart patients who stayed in hospital rooms with sound-absorbing ceiling tiles were less likely to be readmitted within 30 to 60 days than patients in rooms with typical sound-reflecting tiles.
"The cost of readmission for a cardiac patient is very high," Ulrich said.
