The Importance of Acoustics on Patient Care: A Case Study on The Lunder Building

Noise remains one of the top complaints by patients and the cause can come from many different sources. Current design standards influence background noise levels including HVAC systems, walls that separate rooms, sound isolating performance of doors, vibration levels, and intrusive noise from the outside. While these design items are important in mitigating noise, staff behavior, knowledge, and willingness to address the issue also play an equally critical role. This webinar highlight Massachusetts General Hospital’s award-winning Lunder Building in Boston. Presenters will share solutions from both the design side and the staff perspective that provide a more holistic approach to a reduction in noise disturbances and how this was achieved.
