Patient and Family-Centered Rounds at UF

Imagine... you and your family are stranded in a foreign country. You feel lost and confused; you don't know where to go, and you can't figure out how to get home. All around you, people are talking to each other in a language that seems to make sense to everyone but you. Unfortunately, this is often how patients and their families feel in the hospital setting. Luckily, there is something that can be done to alleviate these feelings of helplessness and confusion, and it starts with the medical care team. Through Patient and Family-Centered Rounds (PFCR), the medical care team can serve as ambassadors and translators to help the families feel more at home while in the hospital.
