Patient Responsibilities

As we move forward with your care plan, your active involvement will help us help you. This means, as a patient and/or caretaker:

Ask questions.
Speak up! This will permit your health care providers a chance to better assist you. We want you to be aware of your treatment plan and to understand why it was chosen for you. We are never in a hurry to help answer any questions and alleviate any concerns.

Ask your loved ones to be involved.
Inform your loved ones about your care plan and request their help to assist you in understanding and carrying out your care plan. A second set of ears, or just having someone take notes, while you discuss your plan is always helpful.

Know what medications you take, and why.
Inform your caregivers about the medications you are taking, including nonprescription medications, vitamins, and herbal remedies. If you are given a prescription, be certain to review the prescription and make sure it is the right medication in the right dose. Keep an updated medication list.
