Who we are

You might think that being in a well known health care facility would protect you from being in danger while you are recovering from surgery.

It just isn’t true.

My mom almost died at a well recommended rehab center, one mile from a major hospital. While she was hospitalized, after barely surviving surgery that was made far worse by not receiving treatment in a timely manner, I had to be there every day to be sure that she had the care that she needed.

She was in various hospitals for six months as a result of the rehab center’s inadequate response to a life threatening situation. If not for an impassioned physician’s assistant my mom would have died within 24 hours, in excruciating pain.

This is not the way it should be in the USA, but it is and you need to know how to protect yourself and your loved ones.

You’d Better Have An Advocate will prepare you for your worst nightmare and for a very broken system that doesn’t work as you might imagine for anything that is not a simple fix, and even then you need to be vigilant, if you want to get out alive.
