“Hospital Warrior” teaches how a person can become an effective advocate for their hospitalized loved one. The author has been an advocate for her husband who went through 14 hospitalization. She writes from experience. The information she collected is only available from someone who went through the experience first hand.

Her book includes what to expect, tip and advice, as well as links to additional resources. The book has a lot of details about the hospital procedures, hospital’s chain of command, hospital rules, hospital care, people who can help in various situations. This book does not cover special cases like the needs of people with mental illness, Alzheimer’s care, or issues specific to children. It also does not deal with insurance or billing.

I found her “check lists” very helpful, they serve as a summary of everything the author discussed in every chapter. Very helpful and very well organized book!
