Noise Reduction in the NICU

Project Description: Literature shows that long term exposure to high decibel (dB) levels can have negative effects on infants. The goal of the project would be to reduce current decibel levels by 10% to 50dB. This would be done by increasing awareness of staff and parents, engagement of stakeholders, increased awareness of noise levels and decreased noise from equipment.
