How to amuse yourself in hospital and make an injury claim if something goes wrong
Whatever you are in hospital for, there will probably come a time when you are feeling a little bit better and thus need your mind to be better occupied, and are still confined to your hospital bed. This can be the most miserable time of being in hospital, because you are awake and aware of what is going on, but aren’t able to leave your hospital bed and go and find other things to do.
Being surrounded by other people can make it uncomfortable as well, and perhaps even inhibit your healing process as you can’t relax properly. Here are some things that you can do for entertainment whilst you are stuck in hospital.
- Read and watch movies. This could be a perfect time for you to catch up with any books and movies that you haven’t had time to catch up with whilst you were up and about. Although this may get boring after a little while, for a couple of days it can be enjoyed as a nice rest for you.
- See friends and family. All hospitals have visiting hours to help patients feel more comfortable. Get your friends and family to sort out a schedule so that there is always someone with you during your visiting hours, rather than everyone coming at once and then leaving you on your own for the rest of the time.
- Write and do crafts. Not only will this keep your brain fully occupied so that you are not focusing on any pain or what is happening with your health, but it will also help to teach you to get better at skills, and you may even be able to sell these skills in the future whilst you recover and are unable to get straight back to work.
