Scotland County Hospital in Memphis is pleased to announce the recent implementation of a policy for Quiet Time on the inpatient floor between 1 - 2 p.m. in the afternoons and 10 p.m. - 5 a.m. during the night. The purpose of the new policy is to allow patients to rest and recover better, resulting in shorter hospital stays, faster healing, and better sleep and rest after discharge. Studies show that a Quiet Time policy in a hospital promotes healing and provides a time for more uninterrupted sleep and rest for the patients.
