About the Author

Elizabeth Bailey is a patient advocate and author. Her first book, The Patient’s Checklist: 10 Simple Checklists to Keep You Safe, Sane and Organized, was called “ a godsend” by The New York Times. As a producer, director, and VP of music video production for several record labels, Elizabeth Bailey used checklists to oversee hundreds of music videos for a wide range of artists. While helping her father through a long hospitalization that was the result of medication errors and failures in communication along the care continuum, she realized how her production checklists could be adapted to help patients better manage complex care. She left the music business to work on The Patient’s Checklist while also earning a Masters in Health Advocacy from Sarah Lawrence College. She has worked as a Patient Advocate at a major teaching hospital in New York City and currently consults on an individual basis with patients and families. She is working on her second book, The Caregiver’s Checklist, based on her experience of caring for her father for the last decade of his life. She lives with her husband and son in New York City.
