One of the experts I interviewed in YOU’D BETTER NOT DIE OR I’LL KILL YOU is Kelli Jackson, a critical care nurse. Kelli talked about the ways caregivers get on the nurses’ nerves as well as the ways we endear ourselves to them. Why does any of this matter? Because when you’re an advocate for a loved one with a medical problem, you need to do whatever it takes to get the best care for your child/spouse/parent. As Kelli says, “If you treat nurses well, they’ll be your best friend.”
Here are a few clips from our conversation. You go, Kelli!
