Trust yourself, trust your body. If you’re not getting better under one doctor’s care, get another doctor’s brain on your case. Get a third or fourth opinion if necessary. Don’t stop until it feels like you have the right doctor for you with the right solution you need.
Hospital hazards for patients are mostly invisible to the naked eye. But when you have your hospital checklists, you’ll know what to look for, what to do, and what to say to get safe and sound care for the people you love.
When we’re sick, our memories don’t operate at 100%. For every doctor’s appointment, ask permission to record your conversation so you won’t miss a detail.
