Healthcare

The acoustics of healthcare facilities impacts the health of patients and healthcare practitioners alike. With noise being generated by equipment, employees, patients, patient transport, and equipment transport, the need for a considered approach to the design and implementation of noise control measures is clear. Indeed, patient recovery rates can be impacted if noise levels are too high.

 

Health Technical Memorandum 08-01: Acoustics (HTM 08-01) provides performance standards for new build and refurbished healthcare buildings.
