No One Should Be Alone In A Health Crisis

Admission Assistance

Whether it’s an Emergency Room situation or a scheduled procedure at the hospital, you need an advocate.  When our health has been compromised we become extremely vulnerable. In that moment, if you are uncertain how to respond and have your voice heard, it is critical you have someone there who knows your rights and understands the language to assist you.

PSA will be your voice.  Your advocate will arrive and work with your family and the Hospital staff to make sure they have the critical information they need to treat you effectively.  We help you understand and navigate the medical environment in this critical time explaining all the options so that you and your family can make the best decisions regarding your treatment.  Also, your family will now have a direct line of communication and peace of mind knowing you are receiving the best possible care.

Having your advocate in place before a crisis, allows PSA to show up prepared when you need us most and be there at your side immediately to provide all of the critical information the hospital need to treat your quickly and efficiently.
