Milwaukee, Wis —Brady, a global leader in safety and facility identification, announced today that it has launched a new line of hospital signs that improve communication in healthcare environments. The signs feature unique wayfinding symbols that can be universally understood by visitors of all languages and demographics.
“As demographics evolve and immigration rates increase, healthcare facilities are experiencing a significant increase in the number of non-English speaking visitors,” said product manager David Sachse. “Our hospital signs help reduce language barriers and make sure all visitors can easily find their destination.”
Brady’s hospital signs are a great alternative to bi/trilingual signs, which can often be difficult to read. The wayfinding symbols were developed by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and National Office of Hablamos Juntos, and indicate common activities within a health care facility.
Brady offers over 50 stock legends that include symbols for health services, administration, cardiology, outpatient services, ophthalmology, and more. Available in aluminum, plastic and self-sticking materials, Brady signs can also be customized by size, text and color.
