When should I take someone to the hospital with me?

If we thought that the person to accompany us would be helpful during the visit rather than a hindrance, it would be appropriate to take the person in most cases.  Having said that, a better question might be, ‘When should we take someone with us?’  Some great reasons to bring someone along are training purposes, discomfort from going by yourself, fellowship purposes, or the need for a second person for the sake of accountability.  If you do take someone with you, you should take advantage of having someone to observe you in that environment.  We need to be intentional about evaluating our efforts so that we can learn how to be most effective.
