Preparing for Hospital Discharge
After a medical procedure or illness, hospital discharge can be stressful. Whether the hospital visit was planned or unexpected, leaving the hospital and planning for recovery can feel overwhelming.

- Do you need to learn any special care instructions
- How to change dressings?
- How to use any new equipment or devices?
- How to safely transfer from a bed to a chair?
- Who do you call with questions later?
- What change in condition should you expect?
- When and where will you have follow up appointments?
- How are you going to get home?
- When can you eat again? What are you going to eat?
- What kind of help will you need as you recover?
