.There is often a high level of noise in a psychiatric ward as the television might be blaring, a patient might be in distress, someone else could be listening to a youtube clip and another few people talking on their phones. I would like to suggest that light classical music, the more modern and well-known pieces, be piped, under strict supervision, of course. I find it soothing and I know that many find it equally calming. Nothing can be lost by trying, now can it?
How about building a swimming pool for each psychiatric hospital? Water is calming too. The only problem is the cost of building the pool and the lifesaver’s salary.
