ABSTRACT

Purpose: To provide basic data for improving noise map management, noise management performance and environment and infant development through noise management education of neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) nurses. Methods: The study data were collected from 42 nurses working at NICU before and after intervention. The educational materials were prepared and used in the form of pamphlets. Data were analyzed by calculating frequency, percentage, mean, and standard deviation as performing a paired t-test using SPSS 23.0 program. Results: Noise awareness was 2.48 before training and 2.44 after training (t=.51, p=.610). Noise management performance was significantly improved after intervention (t=1.51, p<.001). The 24-hour noise level of the neonatal intensive care unit was 57.42 dBA pre-training and 56.10 dBA post-training, and The post-training noise level was significantly (t=3.89, p=.001). Conclusion: It is necessary to educate NICU nurses about noise management periodically; This will facilitate the provision of an environment for the rapid recovery and healing of newborn babies.
