A hospital passport can be taken with a patient to hospital and provides important information about a patient with a learning disability, including personal details, the type of medication they are taking, and any pre-existing health conditions.
The passport also includes information about how a person communicates and their likes and dislikes, which can be very important when they are first admitted to hospital.
This can include any communication aids and how they can be used so health staff can communicate clearly. They can also show how the person expresses things such as happiness, sadness, pain and discomfort.
Hospital passports allow health staff to understand the needs of the individual, and help them make the necessary reasonable adjustments to the care and treatment they provide.
