Hearing Aids Could Be The Key to Cutting Hospital Visits

A new study suggests that hearing aids may decrease older adults’ hospital visits.

If true, then this could mean lower costs in the long run for patients and hospitals, though more research will need to be done to confirm.

In a study that was recently published in JAMA Otolaryngology–Head & Neck Surgery, researchers found that only 45 percent of those who said they experience severe hearing loss actually use a hearing aid. What they found next was even more interesting…

Those who wore a hearing aid were less likely to have gone to the hospital or emergency room in the past year.
