How a Patient Advocate Can Help
The patient advocate at the hospital serves as a resource person and as a liaison between patients, their families, doctors, associates and departments within the hospital. The patient advocate may be helpful in situations such as the following:
To ask a question, make a suggestion, register a complaint and offer feedback
To express a concern, either during or after a hospital visit
For a third party to hear or to help you communicate a concern
When a hospital associate (staff member) identifies a situation in which a patient advocate might be able to answer a question, address a concern or facilitate a conversation that would be helpful to a patient and/or family member
The inpatient patient advocate can be reached Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. A confidential message can be left at any time. Someone will return the call as soon as possible.
