|Quiet Time, 1 to 2 p.m.|
Hospitals are extremely busy places and patients need assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Patients are admitted and discharged throughout the day, they need blood drawn, vitals taken, bandages changed, tests taken and so on – day and night. They need their bed changed, their room cleaned, help going to the bathroom and taking a shower. There are overhead pages, monitor alarms, call lights and hallway noises. Not to mention, friends and family members, visiting at all hours of the day. All of these factors can contribute to a noisy hospital. Mendota Community Hospital has recognized the importance of a quiet environment for healing is much needed. Therefore, Mendota Community Hospital is putting key processes in place to help provide for a quiet environment.
