Admit One    
 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.
