BHSM Stories: The Children's Hospital

Aurora, Colorado

ColoradoOur inpatient speech therapy team at the Children's Hospital in Colorado created treat baskets for Better Hearing and Speech Month. These little baskets were made to promote awareness of Inpatient Speech Therapy and Audiology services and to encourage physicians to consult our services as appropriate. Each basket was filled with candy and left at nurses' stations and physician workrooms on all the floors of the hospital. While the candy didn't last long, we're hoping the knowledge and reminder of our services will!

This is our first year promoting Inpatient Speech Therapy and Audiology services to better support patients admitted to our hospital. We're excited to make this a tradition and see how it develops year to year!
