Waiting Room Television Programming
When a patient is sitting in a waiting room at a medical office or hospital the stress level is elevated. Often they are very nervous about what is going to be happening to them and what information they will be finding out about their current health condition. As a practitioner, you need your patient to be in a reduced state of stress so that you can get a true picture of their current health state and to also create a positive patient experience. The last thing that a patient should be viewing on a waiting room television is news media.
As heard on NPR's Morning Edition, there was a national survey done on stress and exposure to news media. "The survey of more than 2,500 Americans found that about 1 in 4 said they had experienced a "great deal" of stress in the previous month. And these stressed-out people said one of the biggest contributors to their day-to-day stress was watching, reading or listening to the news." The lack of positive stimulation to the mind exacerbates the situation and causes increased cortisol levels which in turn reduces the body's natural ability to heal.
