levels in and around the room, and showed patient satisfaction increasing from the fifty-fifth percentile to the sixty-fifth percentile after the implementation of quiet time (Fleischman & Lanciers, 2011). The evidence found in this article supports the implementation of quiet time due not only to patient satisfaction ratings, but clearly improving physiological processes. Conclusion The articles have proven to answer the clinical question at hand. Quiet time is, in fact, a practice that is based in evidence and supported by research. The articles used to research this clinical question included hard evidence, real situations, and statistical proof that quiet time does in fact increase patient satisfaction and promote physiological processes. It is stated that illness, trauma, and surgery place increased sleep requirements on the body, and increased sleep calls for increased quiet time, so medical staff must take responsibility for the implementation of this evidence-based practice (Gardner, 2008).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
