Providing appropriate assistive hearing equipment or induction loop systems can be difficult, in a health care settings.
There is often a need for multiple systems in this environment. Systems can be required at reception, in the waiting room and in consulting areas/rooms.
The issue of confidentiality complicates this. Traditional loop systems “overspill” jeopardising the patient’s privacy.
To avoid this happening it may be wise to look at infra red systems or personal assistive hearing solutions such as the Comfort DigiSystem, Contego or Duett.
It is not only members of the public that may require assistance with their hearing but members of staff .
We can advise on suitable equipment that may be purchased via the Access to Work scheme. This includes the Littmann Electronic Stethoscope 3200.
