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.
