Accessible Medical Services


Accessible Medical Services for People with Disabilities

People with disabilities have the right to proper, accessible medical services adapted to their requirements. For this reason, Israel Elwyn collaborates with the Henrietta Szold Hadassah – Hebrew University School of Nursing with visits by the nursing students to Israel Elwyn.

During these visits, the students learn about Israel Elwyn’s vision, volunteer with the service recipients, and speak to them about their specific needs. These meetings have revealed the many challenges in providing accessible medical services for people with intellectual disabilities, particularly in hospital emergency room settings.

As part of the shared activities, the nursing students take part in community projects that identify the needs of the service recipients at our Community Living Services. For example, the nursing students created the “traffic light form” for people with disabilities to take with them to hospital visits to facilitate more accessible medical examinations. Prior to planning the form, the students met with the service recipients, emergency room doctors and nurses, and Israel Elwyn’s staff.
