[Q] Error bar of median

I have several non-normal distributions so I have to use median,
instead of mean, to represent these distributions.

Since I should use median, it is not clear how I can specify the error
of median values. (If I were using a mean, I could use a standard error
of the mean to represent the error of the mean)

Can any one tell me how to deal with this problem?

Thanks in advance.
