Title

ASSESSMENT OF AUDITORY AND NON AUDITORY IMPACT OF NOISE IN HOSPITALS AND MITIGATION MEASURES TO PROVIDE SUSTAINABLE HOSPITAL ENVIRONMENT

Abstract

Noise is pervasive in everyday life and can cause both auditory and non-auditory health effects. Noise-induced hearing loss remains highly prevalent in occupational settings.In present paper a study was carried out to assess the effect of noise on auditory system.Five hospitals in Lucknow city namely King George Medical College, VeeranganaJhalkaribai Women & Child Hospital, DrShayama Prasad Mukherjee Civil Hospital, Balrampur Hospital & Sahara Hospital are monitored for evaluating noise pollution level( Leq) at outdoor locations of outpatient department (OPD) in day time.It was observed that noise level in every hospital has exceeded the permissible limit of 50 decibel (db). Employees working outside OPD were surveyed and a pure tone audiometry test was conducted for evaluating non auditory impact and auditory impact respectively. Survey revealed the prevalence of non-auditory impact namely annoyance, sleeplessness, stress till first period of 1-2 weeks from timing of starting job and impacts get diminishes withlater continuation of job and now employees become susceptible in working in noisy environment .Results of pure tone audiometry revealed absence of noise induced hearing loss (NIHL) but mild hearing loss is observed in King George Medical College which was highly noisy among the five hospitals.Some measures have been suggested for creating sustainable hospital environment and preventing the occurrence of NIHL in future.

Key Words

Hospitals, Employee outside OPD, auditory & non auditory impact, sustainable noise mitigation measures.
