Abstract: How does an older person with hearing loss react when his sleep is interrupted during the night by a soft-spoken nurse carrying a flashlight? I Only Hear You When I See Your Face is a short video that depicts the hospital experience of a partially deaf older patient, Mr. Peters. The prevalence of hearing loss in the United States is discussed initially. The barriers to communication that partially deaf persons encounter when they are in a new environment are presented.
