YNHH is working to make the hospital a quieter place so that patients can experience a more peaceful, comforting, healing environment. If staff members, visitors or other patients are being too noisy, please ask a member of your patient care team to speak to them. We encourage staff members, patients and visitors to be aware of the noise level at the hospital, to speak in low conversational levels, set beepers and cell phones on vibrate mode and refrain from loud cell phone conversations. We recommend low television volume, encourage use of earphones and we are working to improve the noise levels of our utility carts.
We also have eye coverings, ear plugs and headphones for patients. In addition, there is a "Quiet Corner" in the Atrium Gift Shop, featuring relaxation therapy and healing arts items.
