After a busy day in the hospital, I wanted to write a quick message to patients and their families. Hospitals are confusing places, and it’s frightening when you or a loved one is sick. So many doctors and nurses come and go, and it’s hard to keep track of who everyone is and what he/she said.
I suggest that patients and family members buy an inexpensive notebook and write down the name of everyone who visits and what they say. If you try this out, please let me know how it goes.
Thanks so much for visiting my website! Writing and reading blog posts does take time and we all know that time is in short supply. You and I will both get much more out of this blog if it leads to dialogue. If you found my post useful and wouldn’t mind leaving a brief comment or sharing on social media, I would be grateful. Or if you’re shy about Tweeting but are willing to email me a comment that I can post anonymously or send an anonymous Surveymonkey, that would be great. My posts are generally written quickly, so if you find any factual or grammatical errors, please do let me know. Best regards, Philip Lederer
