Fact Sheet: Healthcare and Face Coverings: Reducing Communication Barriers for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Patients

March 3, 2021
Source: ADA National Network (ADANN)

The ADA National Network (ADANN) has produced a new fact sheet: Healthcare and Face Coverings: Reducing Communication Barriers for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Patients. Global pandemics, such as COVID-19, and the increased use and requirements of face coverings, have created greater communication challenges for people who are deaf and hard of hearing. This communication issue is especially problematic in healthcare settings. This guidance sheet provides tips and strategies for effective communication, and is intended to assist healthcare providers, family members, and advocates of people who are deaf and hard of hearing. A Spanish translation will be arriving shortly!
