What does it mean to be a family advocate or caregiver? An advocate speaks up to protect the rights of another. He voices his concerns while intently focusing on protecting the health and safety of he and his family. He holds that vision dear to him. Especially in the oftentimes elusive world of medicine, it is absolutely imperative to become as educated as possible about the system you are in. Only then is the best care possible.
Today, doctors and nurses don’t have time to explain everything a family wants and needs to know about what is happening to their family member (the patient). Because of advanced technology changes in healthcare and the pressures of “Managed Care,” doctors don’t have the time to explain, in terms the family will understand, all that is happening to their family member as a patient in the hospital. Doctors are just too pressed for time.
