Maintaining a Quiet, Healing Environment

Hospitals by nature are busy and noisy places. Yet in order to heal, you need a restful space. Quietness is important to you, which is why it is a priority to us. We ask that you please partner with us to create a healing environment. Together, we can create a comfortable, quiet place for all of our patients.

Comfort Kit for Strong Hospital PatientsEach of our patients receives a personal Comfort Kit providing:

  • Earbuds (Please use when listening to TV between 8:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.)
  • Earplugs
  • Eye masks

Listed below are a few suggestions to maintain a healing environment:

  • Ask to have your door closed.
  • Please remind your family and friends to speak softly at all times.
  • Please place your cell phone on vibrate and request your family and friends to do the same.
  • Please lower the TV volume or use earbuds whenever listening to TV.
  • Please use earbuds when listening to music.
  • Keep hallway conversations to a minimum.
  • If you are in a semi-private room, please be respectful of your roommate.

Following these suggestions will help provide you a more peaceful, quiet environment for your recovery. If noise or excessive activity in your area is bothering you at any time, please inform the nursing staff immediately so we can assist.
