Patient Experience Digital Series
A Cleveland Clinic & HIMSS Event. Find out more
Frank Cuttita spent nearly 100 days in the hospital battling COVID-19. Doctors told his family to be prepared for what could happen. It's one experience when patients are in the hospital for a few days, but it's a different journey when patients are on ventilators for months tended to by masked and faceless clinicians, and their families are unable to visit due to increasingly stringent and changing safety guidelines.
In this fireside chat, we'll hear from Frank as he talks about his experience fighting COVID-19, how he overcame the unimaginable, and the bigger discussion of the empathy generated by COVID. Hear how he and his family coped with this 100-day journey through the healthcare system in the heart of a pandemic.
On a monthly-basis, this six-part digital series will delve into perspectives from patients, caregivers and leaders from across the healthcare industry to address changing implications for empathetic care.
