Product Description
Education and Training are integral parts in promoting safety within any skilled nursing facility (SNF) or long-term care facility (LTC) and it is our job as medical SLPs to provide education on safety to our patients, nurses (RN’s, LVN’s, CNA’s), other facility supporting staff, and to family members.

One way for us to educate and train in the SNF and LTC facilities is to take time to do group intake trainings, and 1:1 face/face education and training sessions after an ST assessment with recommendations is completed.

As part of this much needed training, visual signs have been my go to resource for the past 10 years as a medical SLP. I have utilized visual signs as an adjunct to the given training I have provided following each ST assessment with recommendations.

So I have uploaded to my TPT store my safety visual signs I have successfully utilized for years. They are my own ideas based on the need of various patients I have treated over the years. They are also my most functional and most effective safety visual signs as per my patients/staff/family feedback and response to each visual.
