Lencore offers complete noise management solutions for healthcare facilities, including sound masking, paging, and audio integration. Given the average noise levels in many healthcare setups, facilities often exceed the noise benchmarks. Using sound masking systems like Lencore’s can help in reducing these noises, making the environment more suitable for patients and healthcare providers alike.
Whether it’s a multi-facility campus or just the pharmacy counter, Lencore can ensure patient privacy and comfort come first. The technology is adept at controlling noise and ensuring your healthcare team is able to clearly and effectively communicate without excess noise.
Lencore’s technology not only assists in creating a calm environment but also helps your facility achieve HIPAA compliance and raises HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment) scores in hospitals. Elevated blood pressure and other stress-related symptoms can often be traced back to a noisy environment. Our solutions aim to mitigate these concerns.
Sound Masking for Healthcare
Sound masking refers to the addition of an unobtrusive masking sound, such as Lencore’s scientifically formulated Green Sound™, to a space in order to reduce noise and 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. Thus, healthcare providers can clearly and effectively communicate without the distractions and the chance of eavesdropping.
- Reduced stress and anxiety: Loud, sudden noises in a healthcare environment can be stressful and anxiety-inducing for patients and staff. Sound masking helps in reducing hospital noise, can create a more calming and relaxed environment, which can improve patient outcomes.
- Improved sleep quality: For patients who are trying to sleep, the sound level should be under the limit 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.
Overall, 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 healthcare sound masking also allows for pre-recorded and zoned paging, as required, to ensure the right message is delivered at the right time to the right place.
