HLAA-WA Hospital Communication Kits

If you are hard of hearing and going into the hospital for treatment, you can make things much easier for yourself if everyone you come in contact with knows two things:

  1. That you are hard of hearing
  2. How best to communicate with you

With this in mind, HLAA-WA has developed a kit to assist you. This easy-to-use, low-cost kit includes a variety of materials and literature to help ensure that even though you have a hearing loss, you will still be able to effectively communicate with doctors, nurses and hospital staff.

View a complete list of each kit’s contents.
