Learning disability resources
Resources provided by BHT learning disability liaison nurses
Our Trust learning disability liaison nurses have put together the resources listed below for anyone who needs to come into hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic who may need help to understand why healthcare workers are wearing PPE and what this looks like.
- An easy read poster about why we wear PPE – Easy read C19 Poster
- An easy to understand symbolic version of the message: “When I go to hospital some people may be wearing masks and aprons and gloves. People wear masks and aprons and gloves to keep me safe.” – Symbol Sheet
- An Accident & Emergency Grab Sheet : Keep a copy of the grab sheet up to date on a computer.
Print and keep with the person who needs hospital assessment or treatment and hand to octor/nurse/paramedic on arrival.
