#e280 "If They Choke, No Heimlich?" Ethical Considerations For SLPs
Amanda Warren, MS, CCC-SLP
This course features a case review of a man with dementia living in a long-term care facility. He is not communicative, sits in a wheelchair, has some swallowing difficulties, and is unable to feed himself. There are DNR, DNI, and DNH orders in his medical record. His family has asked that a Heimlich maneuver not be performed if he were to choke. This presentation will explore the role of the SLP as an integral member of the ethics team.
