Do you know somebody who is ventilated and needs help expressing his needs? This picture board could prove invaluable.

Do you know somebody who is ventilated and needs help communicating?
Sara Rogalsky is sharing a picture board she created, to enable the sick to better express their needs to hospital staff and family, as they become more alert and coherent.
The picture board displays a wide array of needs, from requesting pain medication to wanting to learn with a family member. Some blank spaces have been left empty so family or hospital staff can fill as needed.
Some printing ideas:
- Request the hospital to print (won’t be colored)
- Print it same day pickup at walgreens: https://photo.walgreens.com/store/board-prints-details?tab=photo_Posters-Board)
- Print and laminate locally.
If you would need a picture board dropped off at NYU/Cornell/MSKCC, feel free to reach out to Sara at 786 232 3321, who will likely be able to arrange a dropoff.
