This project aims to compare room acoustic parameters and noise levels in various Danish hospitals: Odense, Gentofte, Bispebjerg, Hillerød and Aarhus Hospitals. Room acoustic conditions are measured in audiometric rooms at Odense, Gentofte, Bispebjerg and Aarhus hospitals. The noise levels in emergency rooms at Gentofte, Køge and Hillerød hospitals are measured over several days. The measurements are also compared with the requirements in the Danish Building Regulation, WHO guidelines and previous studies. The main parameters considered are the reverberation time parameters, e.g., Early decay time (EDT) and T20, and the sound pressure level metrics, namely the equivalent level and peak level. In addition, the staff at the hospitals is asked about their personal perception of the acoustic and noise conditions and the correlation between their subjective disturbances/annoyance and the objective acoustic parameters is investigated
