St. Charles -Bend has instituted a "Quiet Campaign" aimed at helping the healing process for patients in the hospital.

 

Nancy Simonson, Manager of the Ortho/Neuro Unit, who headed up the process says it began with patients complaining that the noise at night was disruptive.  "We recognize that a healing environment is a quiet environment. And when patients are in an environment that is noisy, it causes stress, it increases their heart rate, it increases their blood pressure and that can delay healing. And that's the last thing that we want to do is do anything that would affect their healing."

 

Simonson says they have placed "Yacker Trackers" on all of the patient floors that will activate when the noise level gets too loud; a voice  will say "quiet please."

 

She says that at 9 p.m. an overhead announcement will remind visitors that night time hours needs to be the most restful time for patients and to be extra quiet.
