I have Phonak Audeo hearing aids and have had them for almost 2 years. They are OK at best but my sitiation is challenging.
I work in a busy trauma center and there are noises everywhere. Some repetitive (monitors and alarms) some constant (Ice machine hums and loud overhead AC units).
Then there are burst noises like yells, screams charts being tossed etc.
I hear all of these all too well. I still have trouble understanding speech in this melting pot of distractions despite several tries at changing settings. Hearing on the phone is a nightmare… Everything is amplified except the phone
I honestly don’t have a lot of confidence in my audiologust however. I have had to bring her professional instructions on the various features so she can apply them to my aids but still I am out almost $8,000 and very frustrated.
Do I need new aids or a new audiologist?
Can anyone give me a recommendation? We live near Greensboro, NC.
