American Heart Association recognizes role of Patient/Provider Relationships in managing Heart Failure on World Heart Day

 

American Heart AssociationLos Angeles, CA – A doctor she’d never met walked into Cathy Aumack-Bandy’s hospital room in January 2013 and told her husband that she had severe heart failure and should get her affairs in order. She initially thought he was in the wrong room. Her next thought was that she needed to switch doctors.

“He never even addressed me,” said Aumack-Bandy, a former psychologist from Ruskin, Florida. “Prior to this heart failure diagnosis, I had been a healthy 54-year-old. Now, it felt like he was sending me home to die.”
