Partnerships with Patients and Family Caregivers

Sholom Glouberman

This paper discusses six areas of hospital experience that can be improved: parking, hospital gowns, visiting hours, emergency room triage, hospital food, and care plans and discharge summaries. The areas were identified by a group of patients and family caregivers who reviewed large numbers of patient experiences and identified simple and easy to measure changes. Their recommended changes are called “Key Performance Targets.”
