Sleep Well

We are currently running a pilot campaign on the Trauma ward at Craigavon Area Hospital to help reduce the noise at night.

The pilot aims reduce noise at night and improve the patients sleep experience. The initiative brought many changes to the ward including:

  • Lower/Dim ward lights at 10pm
  • Divert ward phones to 1 cordless phone and 1 landline (to reduce phone sound
  • Repair/replace noisy doors, bins & trolleys
  • Offer comfort packs
  • Offer sound machine
  • Offer decaffeinated and milky drinks
  • Change “culture of care” by clustering/bundling nursing care, where possible
  • Monitored sound levels post interventions
