"Critical Conditions: The Essential Hospital Guide to Get Your Loved One Out Alive" is a thoroughly POSITIVE GUIDE TO GETTING THE BEST POSSIBLE PATIENT CARE INSIDE A HOSPITAL. This Ultimate Reference Guide, by Martine Ehrenclou, M.A., is ideal for Current Patients, Prospective Patients and their respective Loved Ones, Friends and Extended Family members.

It details what Patients need to KNOW and DO in order to obtain the Quality of Care they expect - and are entitled to - once they enter the Hospital. The Book is written in such a comprehensive and genuine manner that Medical Professionals go on record and applaud Ms. Ehrenclou's efforts because they make their jobs easier and help construct a more complicit and educated Patient Population. It is based on more than 150 interviews with Nurses, Doctors, Social Workers and Families and should be made available for sale in every Hospital Book Store in the world.
This is a great guide for families to learn how to take care of the inpatient medical care of their loved ones. I well remember my days working in hospitals with critically ill patients, where charts went missing, there was constant turnover of medical personnel, and it was a constant struggle to understand what was going on with the patients, let alone help them get better. The author hones in on this critical issue and highlights how important it is for healthcare consumers to educate themselves and not passively sit back and hope that their doctors will solve all of their problems. Highly recommended!
