This is a blog by a former CEO of a large Boston hospital to share thoughts about hospitals, medicine, and health care issues.
You may have made a mistake similar to one that afflicts me occasionally. Click on the"post options"arrow in the template. Then check to see that the radio buttons allow back links and reader comments.
I don't think so. You see that this post had the comment link without my changing anything. Dunno why the last one did not. Totally out of the blue.
Why not ask the floor nurses to "prepare" a few patients for your visits, by mentioning it to them in advance? That way, they have time to think about what they would like to say, without it being a "put on the spot" moment.If you only talk to the people whom you say you do, you will have a VERY skewed view. Try talking to some that need an interpreter, for example.John
Why do you think it is a skewed view? I have lots of colleagues and friends throughout Boston, who in turn have lots of friends. Please don't jump to the conclusion that they are not representative of the diversity of our patients. And who says they all speak English?Nice idea about the nurses, but I don't want to bother them with another thing to do. There are lots of requests that bubble up this way anyway.
My mother has been a frequent flyer at BIDMC as an outpatiant and an inpatient. she was hoping to get a visit from you during her last stay. Thanks for explaining how you do this.
Please let me know next time.
