Improving patient safety with noise control solutions

How Calando Panels can benefit healthcare settings

World Patient Safety Day, observed annually on September 17th, is a global campaign to raise awareness about patient safety and drive action to improve healthcare systems worldwide.

Yet as healthcare organisations and stakeholders come together to promote patient safety, one often overlooked aspect is the role of noise control. In this article, we explore how Calando Panels – a highly effective noise control product – can benefit patient safety and contribute to the objectives of World Patient Safety Day.

1) Reducing noise-related stress

Excessive noise in healthcare settings contributes to stress and anxiety among patients, hindering their well-being and recovery. Calando Panels are specifically designed to absorb and reduce noise, creating a quieter and more peaceful environment. The panels help alleviate patient stress by minimising disruptive noise levels, fostering a more comfortable and calming atmosphere that promotes patient safety.

2) Enhancing communication

Effective communication is paramount for patient safety. But excessive background noise impedes clear communication between patients, caregivers, and medical staff. Calando Panels improve the acoustic environment by reducing reverberation and echoes, improving speech intelligibility. This improved communication facilitates accurate information exchange, reduces the risk of misunderstandings, and enhances patient safety.

3) Improving rest and recovery

Quality sleep is essential for patient recovery – but noise disturbances can disrupt sleep patterns and hinder healing processes. Calando Panels minimise ambient noise levels, reducing sleep disruptions and promoting better patient sleep quality. The panels contribute to improved patient outcomes, faster recovery, and enhanced patient safety by ensuring restful and uninterrupted sleep.

4) Preserving privacy and confidentiality

Maintaining patient privacy and confidentiality is crucial in healthcare settings. Calando Panels play a role in mitigating noise leakage, ensuring that confidential conversations and patient information remain protected. By reducing sound transmission through walls and partitions, these panels help preserve patient privacy, bolstering patient safety and fostering trust in healthcare environments.

5) Enhancing focus and concentration

Excess noise can be a source of distraction, impairing concentration and focus for both patients and healthcare providers. Calando Panels create a quieter environment that minimises distractions, allowing healthcare professionals to concentrate on tasks, procedures, and patient care. By fostering a safer and more efficient healthcare delivery process, these panels contribute to overall patient safety.
