Additional Information

From the patient's perspective, a complaint about healthcare or service is an urgent statement of fact. "I am here where I don't want to be", "I am frightened and unsure what will happen next", "I put my trust in you, and now something is wrong", "How can I be sure I will be okay?" When you respond to a patient's complaint, you are responding to the patient's sense of helplessness and anxiety. The service recovery scripts offered in this book can help you recover a patient's confidence in you and your organization.

"I'm Sorry to Hear That..." is an indispensable reference guide that should be at arm's reach of every health care provider and staff member in hospitals, medical practices, and home health agencies everywhere! Baker and Bank offer stellar advice on dealing with a broad range of complaints typically made by patients and family members that, if followed, will help to calm people's emotions, identify and attend to their needs, and improve relationships in the process. Rather than shoot from the hip and say or do things that make problems worse, providers and staff members can refer to the book for more than 300 "best" responses that Baker and Bank offer for the 101 most common complaints. It's concise, easy-to-use, and packed with wisdom. I plan to recommend this book as a "must-have" resource for all of my clients.
What an awesome book! I write as a former clinician(RN), hospital manager, senior healthcare executive, and currently as a healthcare consultant, executive coach and author. I'm also a patient, who's had 3 brain surgeries, involving more than 20 hours of neurosurgery and 30 radiation treatments. With all of this "experience" and as context for my impressions, I relished every page of Keane Baker's book for its sheer authenticity. It's so wise and practical, every health care team member, irrespective of role (or "rank"), will benefit. As a bonus, the book's organization renders it accessible and easily applicable to human interactions. As most business enterprises already know, "service recovery" is a smart and instructive practice when something hasn't gone well from the customer's perspective. It's also imperative to nurturing constructive communications in relationships with those most important to us, be they patients, colleagues, clients, or family members!
This is a book with attitude - a calm, sympathetic attitude. The gentle suggestions it offers lead one toward a customer service attitude toward life. All relationships begin with listening to the other person. Parents do well to receive children's complaints seriously, even when they seem absurd or impertinent. After all, children like hospital patients are relatively helpless.
Everyone can enjoy this book. It can help anyone remember to suffer even the foolish graciously.
