LLP042: How to act when your family is in the hospital

As a hospital physician I have learned that not only is the patient not prepared to deal with their hospital stay but the family is even more ill prepared. Over the past few weeks I have had experiences of both spectrums of care where I had family members who were amazing while taking care of the their loved ones and I had family members who I couldn't wait to heal their loved ones  and discharge them home.

  • At least 8 actionable tips for a better hospital experience
  • Why its important for the family to be active in the role of taking care of the patient
  • Who spends the most time with your loved ones in the hospital
