Noise is one of the important problems among the environmental pollution. Long-term exposure to noise may cause negative effects on physical condition, physiology, psychology and performance which has important health hazard. On the other hand, it is an inevitably problem especially in public hospitals. Also, noise is an important issue for both nurses and patients. Because, an quiet environment is comfortable and peaceful. Additionally, healthy and safety environment is a human right. Further, improving the quality of working conditions will be reflected in the quality of patient care. Therefore, there are two main topics which are “noise pollution in terms of society and the environment” and “noise pollution in terms of worker health and safety” and also, nurses should research based on two main topics and take measure about noise pollution. Accordingly, we need multidisciplinary team work for preventive mental health research.
