Overview: This webinar will provide an effective strategy to understand what “noise” means in the healthcare setting and how patients and staff are impacted. What “heals” historically was placing a the sick person in an environment conducive to comfort. Most of those who became “sick” died. However, not every one. And, comfort, physical and spiritual, was the humane response to relieve suffering.
Today, our healthcare system takes place in an environment driven by function rather than comfort, purposed and designed for function rather than the relief of suffering. We know that the result point to a mortality rate reflecting inefficient infection control, medical and nursing errors, and unforeseen complications that occur when there are more patients than caregivers can tend to.
Hospital noise is not merely a challenge, but is most prominently a risk factor. It is the number one cause of sleep deprivation, which leads to delirium, slower recovery, and contributes to nursing and medical errors.It is also uncontrollable. It feeds on itself. 80% of hospital noise is caused by human activity, whether talking, walking, or using technology.
This webinar will provide effective and immediate tools to bring noise within the domain of each unit or office, to not only control, but to sustainably control as an investment in the well-being of your staff and patients. Yes, it is possible. In addition to the webinar, participants will receive a downloadable white paper as reference materials for action.
