CHANGI General Hospital (CGH) has developed a phone app to
help nurses communicate with Cantonese-speaking patients and it will be rolled out in all wards on Aug 1, or Nurses Day.
If a nurse wants to tell a patient “Place this tablet under your tongue” in Cantonese for example, all he or she has to do is to find the phrase using the app and it will be read out by the smartphone.
Developed by nine CGH nurses, the app called iCOM was piloted in March this year in two geriatric wards. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
