"When a loved one is hospitalized, it is sometimes difficult to get updates about their prognosis and progress. Concerned friends and family may be reluctant to call for fear of disturbing someone at a difficult time. Likewise, those who are charged with keeping everyone informed may find it fatiguing to repeat the same information again and again. That's where PatientUpdates.org comes in. PatientUpdates.org is both a website and a nonprofit organization that was created to provide a convenient and reliable way to keep friends and family updated on the condition of a hospitalized loved one free of charge.
