In order to provide rest and promote healing for our patients, we observe a special quiet time every night form 9:00 PM until 7:00 AM. During these hours, lights will be dimmed in hallways and at workstations and overhead paging will be kept to a minimum. The shades or blinds in patient rooms will be drawn (unless otherwise preferred). Nurses, nursing assistants, and other staff will still perform their necessary tasks, but they will do so in a quiet manner. During quiet time, conversations in the hallways will be kept to a minimum, and all phones and pagers will be placed on vibrate.
