"The food and ward noise"

While working as a dietetic assistant at another hospital people often complained about the food at Ninewells. I was in Ward 1 and the quality of the food and portion sizes was brilliant. An elderly lady who had lost a great deal of weight, looked forward to the meals and ate everything, very important for elderly people who may be malnourished.
My only gripe was the loud beeping of the monitors in bay 4. My head was splitting and I could not sleep. I realise they are important, but could some other kind of alert be put in place, flashing lights at the nurses station.
