Inconsistent sleep patterns can cause problems with mental health and the body’s ability to heal. This is why we have established the Night Time Hush campaign at the Royal Liverpool Hospital.
We are reducing noise at night for our patients and making staff mindful of how they can help. It includes acquiring soft closing bins, reducing volume of conversations (and where they are had), offering patients earplugs, muted mobile phones and considerate shoes that make as little noise as possible to ensure patients have truly restful sleep during their time in hospital.
No-one wants to be in hospital so it’s important to make the stay as worthwhile and restful as we possibly can. Watch our video below to find out more about what we're doing here at the Trust as explained by Matron Margaret McLoughlin:
