acondicionamiento acústico de hospitales 01The benefits of acoustic conditioning in hospitals are undisputed. Every year, a new study confirms the negative effects of noise pollution on people's health and the importance of providing maximum acoustic comfort in homes, businesses and community service buildings. So, it makes sense that the best acoustics should be provided in those places where people's health is protected and restored.

If we look at the users of a hospital, we find that good acoustic conditioning benefits everyone.

On the one hand, the most important users: the patients. Noise and some annoying sound distortions, such as reverberation, reduce sick people’s ability to recover. On the other hand, an atmosphere of quiet and tranquillity improves sleep quality, speeds up recovery, reduces re-hospitalisations and even helps lower the need for medication.

The healthcare staff is undoubtedly another major beneficiary of good acoustic conditioning in a hospital. Having reverberation controlled by acoustic panels ensures good communication between doctors, nurses and assistants, which brings down the rate of medical errors and increases the efficiency of healthcare workers. Furthermore, good acoustics mean you don’t have to force your voice and raise your pitch, thereby reducing fatigue and stress.

Visitors and companions are the other major beneficiaries when acoustic conditioning also reaches the common areas, waiting rooms, canteens or offices of a clinic or hospital, reducing the anxiety of waiting and helping to manage the news they receive about their sick loved ones.
