Communication in an Acute Hospital

Hello,

I am a B5 OT in an acute hospital. I am trying to create a series of easy read documents to enhance the patient experience/communication for LD patients within our trust.

I am focussing on:

  • What is an OT/Physio/Dietitian?
  • Equipment
  • Decisions in hospital
  • The ‘daily routine’ (or as close to one as there is in hospital!)
  • Who’s who within the hospital
  • Service after hospital

I wondered if anyone had come across anything like this/could think of any other ideas that might be useful for LD patients?

Thanks!

Hi there,
I’d recommend the easyhealth website. They collate lots of useful resources and you can search a specific term, e.g.:
https://www.easyhealth.org.uk/?s=Hospital

There is also an easyread Facebook group where people recommend resources.

Best wishes,

Cathy
