Stethoscope Helps Hard-of-Hearing Patients

Lend a stethoscope to hard-of-hearing patients who are not wearing a hearing aid. Speak directly into the stethoscope diaphragm, and the patient may hear well enough to communicate with you. Be sure to clean the stethoscope's ear tips before and after the patient uses it.
