Healthcare Facilities Committee

Healthcare Acoustics and Vibration

Noise and vibration are important concerns for healthcare facilities, affecting patient and staff experience, safety, and clinical outcomes. Join acoustical consultants from Acentech, Jay Bliefnick PhD and Ben Davenny PE EDAC, as they delve into sound and vibration basics for healthcare facilities. We will review current DPH plan review checklist items related to sound and vibration and discuss recent trends and research related to HCAHPS performance and job satisfaction. We will also discuss sound and vibration measurement equipment and techniques as well as ways of monitoring noise and vibration in healthcare facilities.

For those who qualify, 1.5 LU/HSWs are available.
