My Son

[My son was] unfortunately admitted at [x hospital] for post-opt eye issues. ... the resounding issue at ER and up until settled in [his] room is the healthcare staff didn't seem to know he is deaf. I have to tell every single person…the ER nurse was so frustrated with him [when] trying to put [an] IV in because she kept saying “hold still”… he was being so good. I had to keep telling her he doesn’t hear you and doesn’t understand what you want from him. The floor nurses and doctors have been amazing and have tried a bit of sign and really make eye contact and move slower etc.!”
