Elderly Hospital Rights: Protect Your Patients, Loved Ones, Yourself!

The elderly often become victims of the hospital system. If you are or work with the elderly it is particularly important for you to understand patient rights.

This session will cover how to avoid serious pitfalls when staying in a hospital, and help you develop an action plan. The discussion will cover:

  • Who will help you or your patient when in the hospital?
  • What decisions will you have to make?
  • What about insurance? Care instructions? Safe discharge planning?

This workshop is part of the Empowered Elderly Workshop series from the California Alliance of Retired Americans. To download the flyer, click here.
