Creating an environment promoting calmness can have a positive effect on the patient. It is well established that a relaxed patient will feel less pain when undergoing treatment than a stressed patient. Steps taken towards creating a calming environment will therefore have a positive impact on the patients perception of the quality of care provided by the healthcare staff.
