The Institute of Living is committed to providing the best and safest patient experience.

We believe that actively involving patients and families in their own care improves the patient’s experience of the hospital and overall patient safety. When patients are engaged as active participants in their own care, they are more informed of treatment choices and possible complications.

Patient Health Care Guide & Journal

This Patient Health Care Guide & Journal, available in both English and Spanish, is a tool that we have developed to improve communication among staff, patients and families. Patients receive a copy of the Journal when they are admitted.
