Elizabeth W.'s curator insight, March 18, 2014 10:49 AM

This posting has interesting and useful tips for medical staff treating a patient with an intellectual disability. They include being patient because they don't process the information as quickly, observe what may cause them to panic or misbehave,  even when they are in distress and you (the medical staff) are frustrated, it is important to remain calm and try to help them as efficiently as possible. One thing that I thought was interesting and pretty concerning is the pain that people with intellectual disability have. This post states that pain is usually under evaluated and under treated. I think this is an important issue because I feel that a medical staff should know to take more effort and observing any signs of pain because the patient may not have the communication skills to tell the staff and being in pain when you can't tell anybody to help you, I can only imagine, is very scary and this issue should be addressed.
