• Objective: To review the effects of hospital noise on
• Methods: Review of the literature.
• Results: The authors searched for studies that relate
the hospital acoustic environment and staff response.
Forty-one papers were selected that focus on hospital
staff stress, satisfaction, psychosocial environment,
job performance, and health, although not all
specifically discuss noise. Although the effects of
hospital noise on staff are generally negative, results
are sometimes inconclusive. Further, some staff outcomes
(eg, psychosocial environment, health) were
studied in a very limited number of articles or via small
subject sample sizes.
• Conclusion: Although the effects of hospital noise on
staff are generally negative, interpretations must be
made with caution.
