Noise in hospitals is known to hinder communication among staff, causing annoyance, irrita-tion and fatigue, and detrimentally impact the quality and safety of healthcare. High noise levels and noise-induced stress impact negatively on staff performance and wellbeing. The paper presents the results of the assessment of working conditions at workstations in selected hospital rooms in Poland. Environmental measurements were conducted in the rooms of a second referral level hospital in Warsaw. Measurements of quantities characterising noise, were carried out at selected workstations in the rooms occupied by the Radiodiagnostics Unit, Operating Suite, Central Sterilisation, Endoscopic Examinations Unit, Analytical Laboratory and Water Treatment Station. In order to assess the exposure to noise at workstations, the measured quantities of noise characteristics were compared to the exposure limit values. The test results showed that the exposure limit values and exposure action values are not exceeded.
