I am happy to announce that Pat Rullo is returning to the show to discuss patient safety issues. Pat is the author of Speak Up and Stay Alive an amazing book and manual on staying alive and being safe in the hospital. Her book is the story of her journey while caring for her mother in the hospital. She learned very quickly that even with the best doctors and nurses, patients could still be a risk for falls, infections and misdiagnosis.
Pat is now an expert in all things patient safety related. She has dedicated her life to getting the information to everyone. Beside her book, and many lectures, she is host of the Patient Safety Radio Show, a weekly show heard live in Phoenix and Cleveland areas. Recorded episodes can be downloaded at www.patientsafetyradio.com
Pat is relentless in pursuing areas of safety that many people aren't aware of. Today's show will include not just her story but a look at the issues of increased exposure to radiation from CTs,Xrays and cell phones. I know if Pat is concerned, so should I. Listen in folks. This is one show you will want to take notes!
Healthcare Whisperer welcomes a mother, Diane Roof and daughter, Jen Hashisaki caregiver team to the show to discuss their journey into the world of hospice.
This story began when Diane's mother fell, was hospitalized and went to rehab. Neither Diane or Jen, ever thought the fall would bring them face to face with the need for hospice services. It was a journey filled with much anguish and misinformation. During this time, they needed to learn how to navigate the healthcare system to ensure their loved one was getting the best care.
Tune in to find out how these amazing care giving team fought for the best possible care, learned how to ask the right questions and insisted on having hospice involved. This is one show you won't want to miss.
Autism has been in the media a lot lately. Jenny McCarthy, billed as an "autism advocate", was chosen as a co-host for The View.
Autistic advocates spoke up about an offensive ad on the side of a bus for a local children's hopsital, which resulted in the ad being removed (and covered by the Huffington Post).
J Cole, a famous rapper, (kind of) apologizes for offensive lyrics to a recent song he performed. Holly Robinson Peete said she had a problem with the lyrics of the rap song, including the word "autistic".
How is Jenny McCarthy still touted as an advocate for autistic people? Many on the spectrum have openly stated that many of her actions have hurt the community. Why were neurotypical people so offended that autistic people were (vocally) offended by the bus ad?
Why was rapper J Cole apologizing for hurtful lyrics to parents of autistic people, instead of well, the autistic people themselves?
Why do apologies like J Cole's and Joe Scarborough's actually hurt more than the original offenses?
Why does Holly Robinson Peete feel so upset by the word autistic?

I encourage you to join me in a grassroots way. If each of us helps one other person survive a hospital stay, then this book is doing its job.”
