Thinking Points Week 1FundamentalsCommunication1.How do we communicate w/ patients that have special Needs? This can vary based on theneeds of the patient. If the patient is deaf we should have someone who can interpret for thepatient. If the patient has Asperger’s, autism, or down syndrome we should be mindful of themand have patience and not do anything that would trigger them. I also think that we need todetermine the needs of the patient by reviewing their chart or even by talking to family (ifpresent).2.What are Do’s and Don’ts of communication? We need to speak in a kind tone. We also needto be mindful, conscience of what we say, and how we say things to patients. We should try tomaintain an open line of communication. We should not yell, argue, or be short with a patientor others. We also should not be rude or quick to anger.
