Good article. However, based on my own personal experience with a couple of surgeries, I find the most sleep disruptive thing (and it isn't even mentioned) is nurses coming into the room all night long, to take blood pressure, temperature, check IV bags, etc. I understand they need to do that, but that does not give the patient a good restful sleep, and I feel is the number 1 cause of nighttime disruptions. Most of the general noises I could adapt to and sleep through, but the constantly being awakened every 2 hours to check on something was very disruptive, as most times I couldn't drop right back off to sleep. I was so grateful to get home so I could get some real rest....LOL
