Question 2 of 30
Have you ever had a patient want to return a hearing aid? How did you handle that?
Professional Answers Preview
This question is intentionally asked to see how you interact with patients. Of course, you can't take a used hearing aid, but what you can do is find out why the patient wants to return it. Is it not comfortable? Are they not using it correctly so they feel it doesn't work? Is it a cost issue? Because of your ability to interact with patients, you'll be able to let the interviewer know that you'll take the time to meet with the patient, hear their concerns and figure out a plan together.

2.
Outcome measures and verification.
3.
Patient-centred interviewing is key to assess the impact on their lives and particular areas they are struggling in. Other objective tests can also be used.
4.
Ask them about their social situations and lifestyle.
5.
Talking to them, asking about group conversations television telephone. Speech tests, asking family members.
6.
I think it all starts with the case history. And in many ways this is most important because you can understand the concerns of needs of the patient. Really listening to the patient helps you to see them as an individual and not an audiogram. When I do test I start with tymps and reflexes, then speech testing which gives an overall picture of where to expect my pure tones. Then air conduction, bone. Then I explain results and develop a treatment plan.
7.
Case history, patient questionnaire, discussion.
8.
History, questionnaire, discussion with patient re: lifestyle.
9.
With the screening evaluation of hearing sensitivity.

Speaking to them and if audiogram revealed anything that may need additonal testing or referral.

Question 2 of 30
Have you ever had a patient want to return a hearing aid? How did you handle that?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
Yes I have had a patient return a hearing aid through the lions club foundation. It was a pair of donated in the ear hearing aid. I was actually picking up this case after another audiologist and responsible for fitting the hearing aid. She was so unahppy with the aid that I knew it woulndt work. I want to be able to provide the patient with amplication he or she wil use not dispise. I tried to have her try it on and she was just not happy. I talked to her son and made some phone calls and had lions club donate a BTE hearinga id witha slim tube.
2.
Yes, but not often at the VA which is both good and bad at times.
3.
Yes, I had a patient who stated that she did not wear the hearing aids because they were too loud.
4.
No but I can understand that there are a lot of different variables which could need to be changed to help the patient get on better with the hearing aid.
5.
Yes when ATO but got audiologist involved. I would discuss with the patient what problems they are having with the hearing aid and why they do not want to wear it. I would explain to them that we can look at solutions to these problems and with their consent try and do that. I would try and provide them with reasons for these problems and counsel them accordingly. Ask if they feel ready to wear aid, review comm needs, difficulty. Anything we can do to improve situation. But important to still listen and respect their wishes if they are not ready.
6.
Yes, due to the patient feeling the hearing aid did not perform up to they standards, But counseling the patient on expectations and adjusting the aids helped to alleviate the situation.
7.
Yes. Generally these are patients that have had TB and the medication has caused a profound loss in speech recognition and patient does not find it beneficial.
8.
Yes. Generally it's the patients that have had TB and the medication has burnt their hair cells causing profound difficulties with speech reception and recognition that the hearing aid cannot assist with.
9.
I witnessed this during my clinical placement during my masters. The client did not find the hearing aids useful and they returned it after their 4 week trial.
10.
Not a common case but I guess it could happen. In these situations instead of taking the aids of them and sending them on their way I would sit down with them and get to the bottom of why they wish to return them and hopefully if I can help them I will.
11.
I would want to know why and maybe try convince otherwise if I can. Otherwise I would take the hearing aid and give them assurance that they are welcomed to be reffered back anytime.
12.
Yes of course, no realistic expectations, expect miracles, doesnt like appearance.
13.
What are the duties and responsibilities of someone working in this occupation? What do you like about this occupation? What do you dislike about this occupation? What is your educational background? What is a typical day like for you? What is the salary range for someone in this occupation? What is your most satisfying experience so far? What advice do you have for someone considering this career field?
14.
Accept it and ask what was wrong and how would they like it.
15.
Yes, I would ask them why they want to return the hearing aid and then I would tell them that use of a hearing aid is a process not like glasses. I would want to make further changes prior to returning and see if they could agree to keep them if I could solve whatever issue they are currently having.

10.
By the overall clarification about the hearing aid.
