The healing power of speech. 


 

Voxello sat down with Jolyn Schneider, BSN, RN, PCCN, Intensive and Specialty Services, Burn/Trauma at UIHC, to discuss the clinical and operational impact the noddle is having on patients and caregivers at UIHC. 

The noddle helps us to provide a higher standard of care. It decreases the patient’s frustration with not being able to communicate with us effectively. I believe use of the noddle makes a patient feel that the University is doing the best it can to provide them quality care. 

The noddle makes the patient feel more independent. I think at a time when the patient is feeling helpless, a loss of self-esteem, and loss of independence due to their injury or illness – this gives them more independence so they can act on their own behalf to request things they need.
