Since my husband Yoni will not be blogging this week, I'm guest posting for him. Everything he's taught me about biz blogging in this post.

Great hospitals and doctors have many lessons to teach us as businesspeople. Here are twelve tips based on our rather personal experiences...

Be Strong yoni and to yoni's wife. we have struggles in life, we just have to face them with positive attitudes. I support the learnings you have gathered after all these events in your lives. Experience can be a very hard teacher but it teaches unforgettable lessons in life.

I found the article to be very refreshing and a very positive look at hospitals. A friend of mine sent me the article. I have used IVIG twice during bouts of lymphoma when my immune sustem collapsed. I have been in remission for 4 1/2 years now and count my blessings for the great treatment I received.

Dear Mrs. Spelman,

Thank you so much for your thoughts. Firstly I (Rivkah) am very glad to hear that you are in remission. I hope that it is permanent and that you enjoy many happy years ahead! Thank you for sharing something so personal with us.

I'm glad you found the article to be refreshing. It is the outcome of finding ourselves in a refreshing hospital environment. I'm glad to hear that you yourself found an environment where quality care was given.

We know from speaking with patients in the day-treatment unit that immunoglobulin treatment is an adjunct to chemotherapy for certain types of lymphoma too. It is truly a drug with many blessings.

On behalf of my husband Yoni and I, we wish you the best of health and much happiness!

Rivkah and Yonatan Maisel

A very nice article that shows me the value of guest posts. Well done Rivkah! I also want to add that the page opens up slowly, maybe because all of the added pictures. There is a way to condense the pictures. It will help.

Peace, Salaam, Shalom

Hamed,

Thank you. I also looked up on Google about condensing images to save space and speed up the loading. Yoni and I will give it a go whenever he or I next posts.

You're welcome. Up until now I posted other peoples' articles. It was challenging but rewarding to write one on my own!

Thanks Shoshana,

I have been watching and reading Yoni's posts long enough that I have a sort of mental template in my head to go by.

Thanks for reading!

It is a good post Rivkah and I do hope Yoni is back on his feet soon.

Paitents can feel they are being released (like from jail after a long stay)and to be contradicted by the correct terms doesn't help.

Using this example I would add it is to understand how your customers feel by the words they use.

Susan, I'm sure he will be! Thank so much for your thoughts and comments!

One of the big changes I have seen in medicine is more listening in the part of the doctors, essentially what you say. There are a lot of messages that we in business and those in the medical spher have to pay attention to. It gives proper control to the client and the patient.

Heidi,

Things are quite okay at the moment. Hopefully Yoni will be back to writing and working next week. Until then I thought I would substitute for him putting into practice all I have learned from him.

Great Analogy. I worked in the medical field over 19 years, and am glad that now patients are always supposed to be kept informed about their situation. In the last year, I've seen some Marcus Welby reruns ('69-'76) that reminded me of the Bad Old Days when patients were just flat out told they didn't need to know what was wrong with them - and yes, Marcus was just as guilty. They were so "cute" about it, too - very condescending. The hospital I worked in ('00-'08) had a "Patient Bill of Rights" posted in every room, and in hallways. I don't know when the change occurred, but it's a good thing all around.

Duncan,

I remember when I was in the hospital back in the 80's. My chart was attached to my bed. I reached to read it and was chastised by a doctor who was walking into the room. THAT'S PRIVATE INFORMATION he yelled!

I suppose there are many medical institutions that one could write an article about in the negative such as "Lessons Learned from Horrible Doctors". Fortunately we have found a great one, thus the article.

Thanks for your voice!

Rivkah
