Families play such a vital role in the care of a sick child. They are our eyes and ears at home and in the hospital, too, and those caregivers know their child best. I feel strongly that the perspective of the family is as important, if not more so, than all the tests and exams that I might order for a hospitalized child. I listen with compassion and strive to involve family members in the treatment plan. We work best in the hospital as team: doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, and, of course, families!
