The mission of many modern hospitals has expanded to not only include rehabilitation of a patient’s body, but also to rejuvenate their mind and spirit. Industry mandated standards have also become more important as hospitals strive to earn better HCAHPS scores and HIPAA compliance. As patient satisfaction and mandated standards become a greater focus, hospitals are seeking ways to increase acoustic comfort and privacy. The QtPro sound masking system dramatically contributes to patient satisfaction because it effectively promotes rest and relaxation as well as confidentiality. By adding sound masking in healthcare settings, patients are able to sleep better resulting in an improvement of medical outcomes.
Qt® sound masking systems:
• Reduces the intelligibility of speech, increasing patient privacy and comfort during personal medical conversations.
• Increases speech privacy in areas where sound absorbing or blocking materials are not an option.
• Enables administrative and clinical staff to focus on patient care without unnecessary acoustic distractions.
