How can I keep track of all the people who treat me at the hospital?

 Dr. Kathleen Handal, MD
Emergency Medicine
When you meet the emergency medicine (EM) doctor, hospitalist, social worker, charge nurse or a consulting physician, ask for their business card so you can reach them later on. If they don’t have one, write down their name and how to reach them in a note pad. And don’t forget to thank the people who help you. It will go a long way in making everyone’s day brighter, including your own.
