Good acoustics in the medical industry are crucial. Part of the trust between the patient care team and patient involves assurance that the conversations held in the examination room are private. If by chance you heard a previous patient’s concerns while waiting for your appointment, you are less likely to confide in your Doctor. This leads to potential misdiagnosis and taking longer to return to good health.
Favourable acoustics are evident if you walk past a consultation room or are sitting in an adjacent room and cannot hear the conversation inside. If your communication with the patient care team is audible outside the examination room, this can be a breach of privacy, and the Doctor could be liable.
Supporting safety, health, healing and wellbeing with excellent acoustics will reduce medical errors by promoting open conversation among patients, families and the PCT. Good acoustics give the perception of privacy, comfort, safety and security for patients and their families, whereas poor acoustics has the opposite effect and increases chances of readmission to care facilities.
