OHIO RELAY SERVICE FOR PERSONS WITH COMMUNICATION DISABILITIES
All staff members and all patients and families with a speech or hearing impairment will be provided with information regarding the Ohio Relay Service to provide assistance with telephone communications.
The Ohio Relay Service enables persons with communication disabilities to use their TTY (Text Telephone Yoke) to place calls and to receive calls from hearing people anywhere, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with no restrictions. When using a TTY, the typed messages are transmitted to a Communication Assistant who voices them to a hearing person. When the hearing person speaks, the CA relays the message by typing it to the TTY user’s display or printout. All calls are confidential.
To place a call through the Ohio Relay Service, call: 7-1-1 or 1-800-750-0750
