As your hospital stay nears its end, a registered nurse will review written discharge instructions with you to make sure you understand everything, including your medications, follow-up doctor visits, therapy arrangements and more. Here’s what you need to know and do during that conversation to ensure your successful recovery.
NOTE: If discharged on a weekend or a holiday, you may not be able to reach the people you need or set up services immediately. Be aware of this when you’re reviewing your discharge instructions and ask specifically about whether this will cause any problem for you and how you should handle it.
