Did you know, on average, a hospital patient is subject to one medication error a day? What will you do if the pain medicine isn’t working or the nurse tries to give you a medication you know you’re allergic to?
Don’t fall into the trap of being a passive patient. Be proactive and ready to question anything. You may find you’re allowed more pain medication, but the doctor didn’t mention it to you. Communication errors happen all the time in hospitals.
There are several things you should do before, during, and after your hospital stay. This list is in no way exhaustive, but is meant to give you a starting point toward becoming an informed patient.
If you’re nervous about an upcoming medical procedure, redirect that nervous energy in a proactive way. You can begin by reading The Informed Patient, an ebook which spells out everything you need to know to avoid medical errors during your upcoming hospital stay.
