Have you ever spent time in a hospital waiting room because you had a loved one or a close friend that was ill? Imagine being in a waiting room alone and far away from your support system. I know first hand from personal experience the difficulties of dealing with a loved one being ill and spending countless hours in the waiting room hoping for the best. It was my professional role, that I became aware of families who found it necessary to sleep in their cars or in waiting room chairs during stressful periods. These emotional and physical challenges can last days, weeks or even months.
The Palmetto Palace is a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization dedicated to provide care, comfort, & support to families of critically ill inpatients at hospitals in Charleston, S.C. The Palmetto Palace reaches out to families living 25 miles or more from Charleston, that are currently sleeping in hospital waiting rooms due to an unexpected medical emergency.
