Accompanying the Family

Hola a tod@s, my dear friends.


From Asociación Humanizar of Hospital San Juan de Alicante, we have been informed about the following workshop on 25 March:

One of the projects of this volunteer is the accompaniment and listening to/with the relatives of the patients admitted to the ICU: welcome them and accompanied by giving them some instructions and helping them to wear coveralls when a patient requires contact or respiratory isolation.

They wait with the families during the visit and are responsible for give comfort and even embrace people who need it.

For more information about this workshop, click here (only available in Spanish).

Excellent initiative that goes in harmony with the concept redesign your waiting room pointed by Isidro Manrique (@uciero) which is already been presented in our talks

What about you? How would you improve this space and handling it in a more useful area?

Share it with us, we want to hear you!
