What you Must Know When Going to the Hospital
The trauma of being admitted to a hospital, patients and their family
members can easily become confused by the bombardment of information and
instructions from a sea of strangers.
They can lose track of what they need to know and what they need to let their health team know.
Kati Kleber is a registered nurse, certified in critical care, and
provides an insiders guide to the culture of a hospital. She emphasizes
that communication must go both ways.
- How patients can accurately communicate their level of pain?
- What important questions a patient needs to ask (and how to remember to ask them).
- Why patients need to "know their code" or decide ahead of time if the want to be revived if their heart stops.
- What important roles a patient's spokesperson needs to play.
