Health Tips

Participating in your own care has many advantages.Your doctor, nurse and other healthcare providers welcome your involvement. Below, find tips for you and your family to help us ensure your health and safety:

  • Take part in all decisions about your treatment. Ask a trusted family member or friend to accompany you when you visit your doctor if you are too ill or stressed to participate yourself. Share any special care needs that you have. Remember you are the center of the healthcare team.

  • You have a right to question anyone who is involved with your care. To be sure you have all the information you need, it can help to write down questions to ask for the next time you visit the doctor and their answers.

  • Be sure the healthcare professional asks your name and birthdate. Also, don’t hesitate to inform the healthcare professional if you think he or she has confused you with another person.

  • Healthcare workers should tell you what they plan to do before any procedure. Also, you can remind healthcare workers who have direct contact to wash their hands. Handwashing is an important way to prevent the spread of infection.

  • Give a list of all the medicamentation you are taking. This list should include all over-the-counter medications, home remedies, and herbal medications including tea, vitamins and weight gain or loss products such as shakes, pills or bars. Sometimes they can be dangerous when you take them with other medications.
