Ethics Committee

Making a difficult medical decision for yourself or a loved can be confusing, frightening or painful, especially if it is about your or a loved one’s end of life care. Having a good understanding among your family members and health care providers may lessen your fears that these kinds of decisions can cause.

Hearing Impaired 

A telecommunications device is available to help hearing impaired patients, or patients who want to communicate with a hearing impaired relative or friend. We can also arrange to have a person who uses sign language to help hearing impaired or deaf patients.
 

Interpreters

We can provide an interpreter for a number of foreign languages.  If you need an interpreter, please ask a nurse for help. 

Music Therapy

Studies show that music and imagery can help reduce pain, decrese stress and anxiety, and help improve sleep. HSHS St. Vincent Children's Hospital offers a variety of music and imagery tapes and equipment. We also have continuous music channels on our televisions. Please ask your child's nurse about these services.
