Pa­tients need to feel safe

Modern Healthcare - - Comment -

I have a vi­sion where Amer­ica’s hos­pi­tals are fa­mous for be­ing the most car­ing or­ga­ni­za­tions in the world—where the high­est qual­ity care and ser­vices are de­liv­ered re­gard­less of a pa­tient’s race, eth­nic­ity, gen­der, sex­ual ori­en­ta­tion or so­cio-eco­nomic sta­tus. They must be places where all Amer­i­cans feel safe, as­sured, and yes, even loved dur­ing their most vul­ner­a­ble moments. There will al­ways be pa­tients who have no ad­vo­cates and have no one to speak out for them. We have to change minds and hearts within our sys­tems to achieve the best care pos­si­ble for all who place their lives in our hands.
