“A godsend for concerned friends and relatives trying to rein in the chaos.” (The New York Times)
Whether you’re addressing the rising chaos of a pandemic or preparing for a scheduled surgery, having checklists prepared to guide you through a hospital visit can often mean the difference between comfort and pain, personal and distant care – and even life or death.
In today’s hospital system, you can face a series of perplexing obstacles to satisfactory care, from overworked healthcare providers to understaffed facilities – which are heightened in times of crisis. You need to know how to take charge of your own health care; Elizabeth Bailey shows you how to do just that with a series of essential, easy-to-use checklists to better manage, monitor, and participate in your own health care, including: “Before You Go”, “What to Bring”, “Master Medication List”, “Discharge Plan”, and more.
It is more important than ever to have a protocol, including a detailed plan for hygiene and communications while hospitalized. You can trust the medical staff, but you also need to trust yourself or a loved one to be your own best advocate. Newly revised and completely up-to-date, The Patient’s Checklist shows you how.
