Decorative Fluorescent light covers and LED light panels can be used as a form of calming lighting for surgeries where people may be over-stressed. These can be doctor surgeries or even dental surgeries where a form of calming influence might appear to be more appropriate. So what are we referring to here?
Fluorescent and LED lighting is becoming increasingly more common in doctor and dental surgeries and waiting rooms. It is a bright form of lighting and also significantly more economical than most other forms of lighting. Such lighting can be very glaring, but you can take advantage of this higher intensity form of lighting to create some wonderful decorative effects. In fact, some physicians and dentists have found ways of using it to decorate their waiting room and surgery ceilings.
Fluorescent Light Covers for Dental Surgeries
Decorative fluorescent light covers can be used in the surgeries and waiting rooms of doctors and dentists. They generally use fluorescent light covers to disperse the light and make it less glaring. The same is true of LED light panels – these too can be very focused and glaring. Normally, the light passes through a panel of matt or translucent glass or acrylic. This reduces the glare and distributes the light more evenly.
It is possible to slip a printed flexible decorative light cover over the top of these panels. They will then be backlit, and display the pattern or design on the panel that will visible to people in the room below. You can create some marvelous effects with these, including very calming scenes such as undersea views of fish, porpoises and other marine creatures. You can display forests, flowers and other peaceful and calming scenery.
If you use these in your waiting room you can calm people and take their mind off their coming (to them) torturous examination and treatment. It’s amazing the effect that calming lighting can have on people waiting for the torture of a dentist’s drill!
Decorative Light Covers Distract From Late Appointments
The same is true of many people waiting in a doctor’s surgery. In some countries this can be a long wait. Doctors cannot always be available at the exact time of the appointment – particularly in countries such as the UK where treatment is free and doctors are allotted around 10 minutes for each appointment but can also be called out for an emergency. Such ceiling decoration can distract those in the waiting room who have been patiently waiting for way past their appointed time.
Sky panels, beach scenes and realistic waterfalls will generally keep their mind employed and delay the decision whether to wait, complain or make another appointment. The doctor might prefer the first, while the receptionist might normally prefer the third option. An interesting decorative fluorescent light cover may be enough to keep those waiting entertained until the schedule gets back on course.
Calming Lighting Effects for Children
Children in particular can become stressed while waiting to see a doctor or meet the dentists’ drill. Fluorescent light covers with calming lighting may help them, but they would likely prefer something more appropriate to their age.
