Noise Risks that Impact Patient Outcomes Discussed in -
"Curing the Noise Epidemic: How Loud is Your Design?"
Thursday, May 8, 2014
11:00 am PDT, 2:00 pm EDT
Webinar Presenter: Susan E. Mazer, Ph.D, President, CEO & Co-founder,
Healing Healthcare Systems, Inc.
Join Susan Mazer as she explores the pandemic of hospital noise, often leading to heightened anxiety and stress, medical errors, staff burnout, and HIPAA violations. For patients and families, quality of care is experienced beyond the hospital bed and often beyond the hospital room. The patient experience extends to what patients see, touch, taste, smell, and hear.
The auditory environment is the least controllable and the most pervasive, involving communications, technology, family dialogue, sounds of recovery and sounds of disease. This one hour webinar will embed the issues of noise as a critical outcome of health design and provide both insights and frameworks for creating a healing, restful environment.
