The Hospital Experience for a DeafBlind Patient by Renée K. Walker

The Hospital Experience for a DeafBlind Patient by Renée K. Walker

I really believe this woman’s experience is so important to share. For many of us, the hospital experience is already filled with uncertainties and fear. But imagine, if you will, being deaf and blind. How much more unnerving (or even terrifying) would it be/could it be as things are done to you and you have no idea what is going on or why?

Now, imagine that you are a child! You don’t have the understanding of an adult or an adult’s ability to process what you are experiencing. And, your only source of communicating with the outside world is taken away from you at a critical time when you need it most.

What can we do to alleviate unnecessary suffering and terror? Read this article to see. Renée has some good ideas showing how hospital personnel can help and how the rest of us may be able to help, too.

Please consider sharing this information to help raise awareness of this issue. Perhaps, if we all try to educate others, the experiences that Renée and SP experienced won’t have to be repeated.
