There is a great new book out there for patients and their families. It is called Questions Patients Need to Ask. Dr. David Shulkin, CEO of Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City, wrote it with the hopes that it would help patients and their families get safe care and be as informed as possible when in the hospital. Dr. Shulkin has been on the front lines of the patient safety movement for years now, and is truly passionate about patient safety.

It’s important to ask questions when in the hospital, or in any health care setting. We developed our Care Journal with that very thought in mind. Dr. Shulkin’s book is a great tool for empowering patients and their families. His book is informative and a must-read for anyone who is going into the hospital or who knows someone who is.
