To do the baby sign for hospital, your dominant hand will form the ASL 'H' sign, then you'll make the sign of a cross on your opposite arm, starting vertically, up down, then horizontally, left to right, as if rubbing the opposite upper arm after just having received a shot. The sign can also remind you of the international red cross and red crescent foundation, which is a movement dedicated to helping protect or restore people's health and well-being across the globe.
We mainly use hospital when equipping a baby with a chronic condition likely to have multiple visits to the hospital.
Use the hospital flash card in conjunction with the hurt and doctor flash cards. We hope you never have to use this sign but if you do it will certainly make things easier for everyone. As your baby gets more advanced, you can introduce him or her to other medical signs like dentist and nurse, you can use feet and other anatomical references to help your baby or toddler as they navigate medical care.
