Patient Advocacy is an important area of specialization concerned with a patient’s knowledge regarding the use of health plans, insurance, understanding medication that has been prescribed to you as well as your diagnosis and treatment. With the Institute of Medicine reporting that anywhere between 44,000 and 98,000 hospital patients die every year due to medical mistakes, it is increasingly vital that patients have someone to help guide them.
In this episode of iNurse Radio, our host Jeff Allen chats with Ava Sammarco, LPN, regarding the importance of patient advocacy, how patients can avoid succumbing to the problems in our healthcare system and the questions you should be asking as a patient to ensure you receive above standard medical care.
