Communication and Interpreter Services
For the Hearing-Impaired
A telecommunications device is available to help hearing-impaired patients or patients who want to communicate with a hearing-impaired relative or friend. Arrangements can also be made to have a person who uses sign language help a hearing-impaired or deaf patient. Ask your nurse for assistance.
The hospital has access to interpreters for a number of foreign languages should a patient require it. Your nurse can assist you in obtaining these services.
