Take charge of your care.
During your stay, the doctors, nurses, and staff of your hospital will treat you and your family as partners in your own care. One important way that you can be involved is to speak up. Ask questions, voice your concerns, and don’t be afraid to raise any issues relating not only to your care and treatment, but also to overall hospital services.
- Write down any questions you have
- Choose a support person to communicate with the doctors and staff
- Keep a list of doctors you see and the medications they prescribe
