Healthcare acoustics are a vital part of patient rest and recovery. Indeed, A surveys indicate that noise and its adverse impact on rest significantly affect patient satisfaction. Engineering healthcare acoustics to provide continuous and consistent background sound levels results in a more comfortable environment and helps reduce the annoyance a patient experiences as a result of intruding noise.
Healthcare acoustics, however, pose a wide range of challenges for healthcare facilities managers— compliance to quiet patient environments to MRI vibration isolation to noise control for emergency ground and air traffic. We can design solutions to nearly every kind of acoustical problem in new construction, remodeling, or retrofit healthcare projects.
We work closely with architects, facilities managers to design proper acoustical environments to improve patient satisfaction, protect patient privacy. We can test and measure audible and intelligible sound and voice transmission to control, isolate, and mitigate sound. We employ sophisticated acoustics modeling software to predict and analyze healthcare acoustics in facility designs. For healthcare facilities already built, we use state-of-the-art acoustics measurement technology and predictive modeling to assess acoustical issues and evaluate potential solutions to acoustical problems.
Healthcare acoustics include:
- Acoustical design for patient satisfaction
- Acoustical design for speech privacy compliance
- Noise isolation for patient privacy compliance
- Facilities noise control
