Hospital Noise: Textured Floors

Textured floors may look nice, but in hospitals they are quite loud (and bumpy) when moving a stretcher over them.

This video compares the sound of a relatively new & expensive stretcher over a brick floor vs flat vinyl.

The transport would have been louder if IV poles and a ventilator accompanied it.
