Health Care Leaders Focus on Patient-Centered Care
Date:10/1/2009

o publicly declare their commitment to the values of patient-centered care, among them that "a patient is an individual to be cared for, not just a medical condition to be treated" and "each staff member is a caregiver, whose role is to meet the needs of each patient."
  • Hospitals are coordinating a variety of events as well as distributing "I Am An Expert About Me" stickers to patients, and staff members are wearing "I Am Listening" stickers.
  • In addition to providing expertise and resources to health care leaders, Planetree provides consumers with information on its Web site, www.planetree.org, including a list of Planetree hospitals by state along with a list of questions to ask when choosing a hospital. Among the key practices that patients and family members would expect to find in a patient-centered hospital include non-restrictive visiting, processes for proactively sharing medical information with patients and ongoing opportunities for patient and family input into hospital practices.
