Honoring Elizabeth: The Never Alone Project - Part 2

Guest: Steve Reiter

When COVID-19 hit in early 2020, hospitals restricted family members access to their loved ones' rooms. Without the comfort of an advocate or the desperately needed human touch at their bedside, many patients become more sick or die. On today's edition of Family Talk, Steve Reiter continues to share the heartbreaking story of his wife, Elizabeth, who died alone in her hospital room during the pandemic. Thanks to Steve's organization, ten states are moving toward a reasonable accommodation for a loved one to be allowed in the room around the clock through "Never Die Alone" bills.
