Funny, You Don't Look Deaf

Medical mistakes, omissions and delays can happen when miscommunication occurs on scene. This session takes a closer looks at how to recognize and better communicate with our patients who are deaf or hard of hearing. Additionally, as EMS professionals, we put our hearing at risk on a daily basis. Tips to avoid further hearing loss will be explored. During the last portion of this session, attendees will have a chance to learn and practice some basic emergency signs in American Sign Language.
