1. Navigating the Emergency Department With A Senior Kim Hegwood 16:28

“I think one of the most important things about navigating the emergency department, preparing for a trip to the emergency department, is making sure that you have a list of all medications, an up-to-date list. Make sure you have a list of all allergies that a patient may have. It’s helpful to have a list of their physicians, with or without phone numbers. And it’s important to bring patience because you never know what to expect.” Dr. Hazel Cebrun

Kim Hegwood brings Dr. Hazel Cebrun to the show today to talk about what families need to know about going to the emergency department with a senior loved one.
