   Importance of Having a Medical Advocate: Part 2-

Someone who is admitted into any hospital benefits from having a medical advocate.  Someone to be there to make sure that your doctor knows the names and dosages of your medications, to write down your doctor’s comments (to recall at a later time, or to compare when speaking to a different specialist).  They can also check for drug interactions with any present medications you may be on. Be sure to use the medicine checker found on the bar “Health Info A-Z at the top of YouurCity.MD,   http://www.cincinnati.md/medchecker.aspx?l=a&s=1 , or check with your families’ pharmacist. You should check if there are negative drug interactions between what you had been taking previously, and what they are prescribing at the time of the hospitalization.

Make sure your prescription list is updated (and keep it behind your driver’s license on a card, in your car, and with a trusted second-person party).  This card should include:

-prescriptions you are on presently- names and dosages


-doctors names and contact numbers


-dates of hospitalizations and the reason for them

-family health issues (cancer, cardiac issues, diabetes and who had them), almost creating a ‘Family Tree’

Be proactive!  Embrace the role of advocate for yourself by creating a survival guide to assist those medical personnel that may need to help you.
