Noise in hospitals, whether from loud voices, televisions or banging doors, can be an issue for both patients and staff, especially at night. Better sleep is well-documented as leading to reduced stress levels and faster recovery from illness, which results in children being able to go home earlier.

The SoundEar Noise Warning Sign is a wall-mounted sign that lights up when noise levels  become too high and reminds everyone to keep the noise down. The presence of the sign is usually enough to remind people that noise is an issue, without anyone having to complain. SoundEars are commonly used within intensive care and neonatal units.

The medical team at Royal Preston Hospital want to purchase two SoundEars for the children’s ward, allowing staff on the ward to keep track of noise levels and improve the wellbeing of young patients and their families. This small but impactful project will benefit up to 30 children on the ward each night

“Infections of the central nervous system need urgent and appropriate treatment. Most laboratory methods can take from 24 to 48 hours for diagnosis of bacterial meningitis and three to seven days for diagnosis of viral meningitis or encephalitis. The new equipment will mean we can get results of these tests in around an hour. We’ll be able to inform the clinicians of a positive result, allowing targeted therapy and reassurance to the patients and families. Just as important is the reporting of negative results, which may enable treatment withdrawal and possibly a shorter hospital stay.”
