Well, he was one of the special men among the women of “Sex and the City”. But actor Evan Handler has a winning role off the screen as well as he’s trying to change the way the hospitals do business and CNN medical correspondent Elizabeth Cohen explains in today’s “Empowered Patient” segment.

 For fans of “Sex and the City”, Evan Handler is Harry1 Goldenblatt.

  “Charlotte York, will you marry me?”

 What people don’t know is along with acting2, Handler has another passion—patient empowerment. For him, it’s personal. When he was 24, Handler was diagnosed with leukemia. Doctors told him he would likely die. Handler believes he’s alive today because of some truly excellent doctors, but also because he was a royal pain in the neck.

 I was considered to be difficult and I was pretty rigorous about checking everything all the time.

 For example, once he looked at his I.V. bag and noticed another patient’s name.

 So I rang the call bell for the nurse and got the very common response of, “what is it, Evan? We are on a lunch break.” Then I said, “Well actually, the drug that’s running into my vein3 has someone else’s name on it.” And there was a pause. And they said, “Someone will be right there.”

 And he says this was just the beginning. Infections were allowed to fester. Safety precautions were ignored. So what are his tips for dealing4 with an imperfect healthcare system? Handler’s first words of advice—when you’re seriously ill bring someone with you to the doctor’s office or hospital.

 It’s really, really tough to keep your eye on everything by yourself.

Also read about the drugs you’re taking and don’t be afraid to speak up.

Question whether it’s the best drug for the condition.

Now more than 20 years later, Handler is cancer-free and writes books about what happened to him.

You go in this room here……and uses his celebrity5 to tell his story.

I think it’s horrendous6 that some of things that happened to me happened and I like them not to happen to others.
