The most recent source I went through was a video about person-centered care from the Univerity of Michigan Hospital. This source was very impactful because I’ve been reading about this concept for so long that it was exciting to see this concept acted out. The first thing I noticed was the sense of community among the team of doctors, nurses, CNAs, and the patient. What person-centered care is really all about is informing everyone and making sure no matter how much medical knowledge you have that you are listened to and your opinion is respected. The benefits of this include a higher level of dedication by staff, confidence from the patient, and a higher overall rating of the hospital or nursing facility which allows grants and more funding for medical programs in that facility.
