What does it take...
What does it take to raise caring to a whole new level? It takes Medicine of the Highest Order. Over the course of his recovery, Dr. Berk has become convinced that hospitals have to make time for caregivers to get to know their patients so they can feel good about taking care of someone, and the patient has time to let the caregiver know they appreciate the care. "Compassionate caregiving is an amazing experience". See Dr. Berks amazing transformation.
