COMMUNICATION BOARDS WITH PICTOGRAMS IN ICU – HOSPITAL ENFERMEROS ARGENTINOS – MENDOZA
The Hospital Enfermeros Argentinos de General Alvear in Mendoza (Argentina) has delivered to the Intensive Care Unit – ICU a series of augmentative communication boards with ARASAAC pictograms, which allow the health professional establish a link and understand the basic needs of patients with assisted breathing or speech problems.
The Department of Speech Therapy and Communication has analyzed the appropriate method of augmentative communication and has begun with basic and specific boards for this sector.
The material has been extracted from the page of the Aragonese Center for Alternative and Augmentative Communication (ARASAAC). Specifically, they have been extracted from the project carried out for the ICU of Tres Arroyos Hospital in Buenos Aires (Argentina) and that you can download them from this link: Communication boards for intensive care – Hospital de Tres Arroyos – Buenos Aires (Argentina) | ARASAAC: CAA Materials
The commitment is to continue making a diagnosis of the different services and apply it to other areas that require it.
From ARASAAC, we convey our congratulations to all the institutions involved for the initiative and our gratitude for trusting our pictograms to carry it out.
