Are you able to hear the punch line of the joke while in a group of people? Can you hear others on the opposite side of the dinner table? What about the actor’s lines during the play, did you hear those?
We call your attention to this because hearing is essential. It’s essential in our work and personal lives. Hearing connects us to each other and is essential to our daily interactions with patients, staff, families, and friends.
If you notice difficulty hearing or understanding others, take the time to have your hearing tested by an audiologist. Your co-workers, friends, family and YOU will benefit! Hearing is as unique and personal as a fingerprint—preserve and protect it by wearing hearing protection around loud noise and preserve your connection to others by hearing. Don’t wait for years to check hearing; it takes half an hour to get your hearing tested!
