Sound Masking for Healthcare

Sound masking refers to the addition of an unobtrusive background sound, such as Lencore’s scientifically formulated Green Sound™, to a space in order to reduce the impact of disruptive noise. In healthcare facilities, sound masking can have several benefits, including:

Improved speech privacy and confidentiality: By reducing the amount of background noise in patient rooms, hallways, and examination rooms, sound masking helps to ensure that confidential information is not overheard.

Reduced stress and anxiety: Loud, sudden noises in a healthcare environment can be stressful and anxiety-inducing for patients and staff. Sound masking can help to create a more calming and relaxed environment, which can improve patient outcomes.

Improved sleep quality: For patients who are trying to sleep in a hospital environment, the sound of other patients, staff, and medical equipment can be disruptive. Sound masking can help to create a quieter and more restful environment, which can improve sleep quality and promote faster healing.

Enhanced speech intelligibility: In areas where speech is important, such as speech therapy rooms or hearing aid testing areas, sound masking can help to reduce the impact of background noise and improve speech intelligibility.

Sound masking can play a significant role in improving the overall experience of patients, staff, and visitors in healthcare facilities, and promoting better health outcomes.

Paging and Audio for Healthcare

Clear and effective communication is important for all businesses, but it’s critical when it comes to healthcare. Lencore’s noise reduction systems also allow for the integration of paging and audio which can reinforce emergency messaging from a primary notification system or integrate paging functionality to reinforce your existing nurse call system. Lencore’s systems also allow for pre-recorded and zoned paging, as required, to ensure the right message is delivered at the right time to the right place.
