PERFORMANCE: Staff have been told to reduce night time noise levels at Western Sussex Hospitals following patient feedback.

Trust board papers said the board was “advised” in October that a detailed review had been undertaken “in respect of reducing noise during night time periods on wards”.

The papers said: “A video and other resources had been produced to illustrate to staff the importance of measures to keep noise to a minimum.

“This work had been undertaken in response to patient feedback and also directors’ observations of wards during night time periods,” they add.
