Interview: Annette from D.C.

Thoughts on our health care system


"I think there are better ways that we can communicate with physicians.

I think that we need to find better ways to ensure that they are communicating with each other. There was a complete break down in communication between the cardiologist and the person that was doing the battery changes.

There was a complete breakdown in follow up in what happened at discharge when [my mother] got to her primary care office, so I think we need to do a better job in making sure everyone’s talking to each other.

We assume they are — and they’re not — and it can lead to some pretty complicated, sometimes very difficult endings."
