Reflection series- You have something to say

I love the last line! Well this is something I have to work on, but haven't really had to yet. There was one time, in the hospital, that really made me mad. I spoke up that time and they are now using the incident as a training tool for new CNA's and Nurses. Basically, because of high census, they moved my son from a private room right next to the nurses station to a room at the end of the hall into a shared room. Not ideal because he can't talk, is a choking hazard, with a low immunity system, but I can get over most of that. I was mad but understood that he was small and they needed the room. The finally straw was doing it without asking my permeation. I found out from my mom who went to visit him and was not in the same room. She called me and told me. Needless to say, I rushed up there and gave them a piece of my mind. The head nurse followed up the next day. I laid into her too (through my tears). She made it right and that was really the only time I had to do anything like that.

I feel really fortunate to only have to give people a piece of my mind one time. The staff at the clinic and hospital really have been very good to us.

How have you stuck up for your child? Do you have to do it often?
