Ladies. Do NOT be afraid of your nurses or speaking up!

I've read so many horror stories about hospital stays.
I just want to tell you ladies that you do not have to put up with being mistreated at all. YOU are the one having the surgery and the staff at the hospital is there to take care of you. They get paid to take care of patients.
Do not be afraid to talk to someone above your nurses head.
Do not be afraid to talk to the patient advocate..you can ask for this person or have a family member ask for them.
You do not have to stand for being talked down to.
If you need something do not be afraid to ask.
Don't be afraid to tell the nursing staff that you are going to call your Doctor/surgeon because that staff knows better than to peeve the Dr or surgeon off. Your dr wants you to be treated well and be taken care of you so you will heal properly because your healing reflects on them.

So please do NOT be afraid to speak up for yourself.
If you have to you can pick up the phone in your room and call the hospital's patient advocate or anybody else you need to if you have asked the nurse to talk to them and they haven't helped you.

Sorry this is so long, but I'm seriously upset about how some of the ladies have been treated during their hospital stays..My Dr/Surgeon is filing a complaint because of how I was treated. (not near as bad as some because my husband was also there)
