Communications kits offered to Treasure Coast deaf and hard of hearing

TREASURE COAST — The Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services of the Treasure Coast Inc. has teamed up with the Treasure Coast Chapter of the Hearing Loss Association and composed a “Hospital Communication Kit.”

The kit includes preparation tips on things to check on before one is admitted, what to do when one goes to the hospital, communication tips for hospital staff and signage to display above a bed reminding staff of the deaf’s communication needs.
