In brief: Identify doctor

With so many people in the hospital, it can be hard to identify who's really responsible for your father's care.
First, ask the nurse for the name of your father's "attending" or "main" physician. Ask to have them paged and ask for a family meeting or a phone call to discuss your father's care. If you're not getting a response, ask to speak with the charge nurse or nursing supervisor. Good luck.
