Patients with autism react and communicate differently, requiring a special approach to creating a safe and supportive environment – especially in emergency situations. Recognizing the opportunity to develop a comprehensive approach for this need, HealthAlliance Emergency Department leadership initiated a special training program for medical providers, nursing staff and key hospital personnel, such as security.

Besides training, the program incorporates sensory boxes which allow an patient with Autism Spectrum Disorder to select an object, such as a squeeze ball or pinwheel, to aid in relaxation and in dealing with stress. The Emergency Department also acquired two iPads that feature autism-specific apps that help staff communicate with patients with autism and verbally impaired patients. The devices help medical providers learn the reason why the patient has arrived for care; the patient’s pain and discomfort level; and his or her communication preferences.
