Announcing the Vidatak Spiritual Care Communication Board!

English (front)

Designed by hospital chaplains who wanted to better understand and serve mechanically ventilated ICU patients, the Spiritual Care Board was developed at New York-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City. It allows a nonvocal patient to indicate spiritual preferences, feelings, and needs, all of which might otherwise go unaddressed. In a clinical study published in the Annals of the American Thoracic Society, patients from a variety of religious and nonreligious backgrounds used the Spiritual Care Board with a chaplain and reported decreased stress and anxiety, and no harm.* By providing this patient-centered, evidence-based, and holistic clinical tool, you can provide emotional, moral, and spiritual support to people who cannot speak for themselves. You can help critically-ill patients express their deepest needs at one of the most challenging moments in their lives.

"My husband wanted to talk but the tracheotomy was making it difficult, so only sounds came out. When the EZ Board arrived, you have no idea how it made me feel. My heart was happy and tears of joy came, knowing that you cared enough to help my husband communicate with all of us."
