Healthcare Whisperer welcomes Pat Rullo to this week’s show. She is here to discuss her new book “Speak Up and Stay Alive”, How to be a not so patient activist for yourself or a loved one. Pat is on a mission to educate the public about how to stay safe and alive during a hospital stay. She experienced the horror of hospital errors when her mother had shoulder surgery. She learned first hand the need to be vigilant and advocate for a loved one’s care. Pat says, “Hospital safety is such a big problem, this book alone cannot effect a substantial change. As the reader, you have the power to make a difference. 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.” Be sure to listen in to get some great tips on staying safe in the hospital. Learn how to get involved in the grassroots movement to keep hospitals safe.
