So thrilled to hold the paperback of Navigating Your Hospital Stay in my hands… Said paperback received approval from my 97 year-old hospitalized friend Rita. Rita suffered a fall about a month ago and has successfully navigated her way (with the help of her son and attentive nieces) through an acute care hospital stay. She is now in rehab and starting to make progress in her walking. Hopefully she will be headed home soon. Rita’s son used a lot of the information found in Navigating Your Hospital Stay to guide them through her hospital stay with a noticeable decrease in stress and anxiety. What helped them?
- Understanding that a three-night stay in the acute facility was necessary if Medicare was to cover her rehab stay.
- Knowing who to speak to about the nuances involved in picking a rehab facility and the logistics of getting her there.
- Understanding the importance of keeping track of the myriad of specialists managing her care, and to whom to direct specific questions.
I have received a number of emails telling me specific ways in which the content of my book has already helped!!
This thrills me beyond words. I am humbled!
