Patient Rights


Hi friends! Today I am discussing your rights as a patient and sharing a story on my first time actually “firing” a healthcare provider! Of course you always want to be as respectful as possible. Obviously healthcare is a business and healthcare providers are people too, but as patients we deserve just as much respect as anyone else. Never feel the need to “settle” if there are options available. This nurse was EXTREMELY rude after my BIGGEST reconstructive surgery for my Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) | Jpouch surgery. She didn’t want to help me, she pressured me to do things I physically would not do, she was irresponsible and reckless with my drain, ect. I gave her multiple days to correct her issues/attitude but nothing changed so this is the outcome. Sometimes it can be hard to stand up for ourselves as patients but we are human first 🙂

  • I’m so sorry that you had such a negative experience, Shawn! That is really shocking! I am very glad to hear that you stood up for yourself and what was right for you, you’re absolutely right that you’re more than just a patient, you’re a human being and your individual needs ought to be taken into account! I’m sure that this video will be really encouraging to anyone who is in a similar situation and needs to find the confidence to stand up for their own needs!

    Hi Shawn. Saw ur video. It’s a real tragedy to have a few heartless insensitive people in this care taking profession. A whole lot of them are real angels always touching your heart by caring for you in every possible kind way . You have been through a lot at the time when you needed the utmost care and love . Wish you well always.
