Getting a good night's sleep

You're not likely to get well at the hospital if you can't sleep. A new program at Stanford Hospital & Clinics recognizes this fundamental idea and takes practical steps to address one of the causes of sleepless nights: Noise. It's a problem that plagues many hospitals, and Stanford is on the forefront of dealing with it in a comprehensive fashion. This approach is detailed in a story in today's San Jose Mercury News.

I first wrote about this program in May, and the story can be found here. It will be interesting to see how it develops in the coming months.
