  • Understanding the family’s frustrations and concerns.
  • Understanding what staff did wrong.
  • Understanding what can be done to ensure patients with LD get the care they deserve.
  • Using your understanding to help you make changes to your own practice in the hospital setting.

Please watch the video as many times as you like and make notes. At any point, you may wish to go back over each question until you understand the content of the page.
