When should you speak up for your care? Here are some common examples:
– When you try to contact your medical provider or supporting staff, and there is no return call
– When there is a lot of information explained, and you don’t think you will recall it later
– If you don’t understand the information
– If you’re confused about the recommendations
– If you believe the medication prescribed is costly, or you may have an adverse reaction
