Advocate, Not Alienate

Advocating For Your Child:

Parents need to know the normalcy of the abnormal situations in a teaching or other hospital. The key is to pick the battle, the right ones, and not the smaller ones, or you alienate nurses and medical students. Let the minor stuff go on pass….. but be a advocate when situations call for it such as the following.

Examples: Advocate for your child taken off oxygen when they shouldn’t have been, having another’s child’s medication running into your child, or a medical student trying for the 10th time to draw blood from your child ~ you must advocate in these kinds of situations.
