How to prepare for leaving hospital – injury lawyer in Ottershaw

If you have had an accident or illness and been in hospital for a while then it can be stressful when it is time to leave. You will need to learn to manage your illness or injury at home and it can be frightening not having doctors around you in case something goes wrong.

If you prepare adequately for leaving the hospital, though, this should take some of the pressure off. Here are a few ways in which you can make sure you are properly prepared for leaving the hospital.

Pay attention to your doctor

Before you leave your doctor should speak to you about your illness or injury. You need to understand why you were admitted in the first place and what is likely to happen next. Your doctor can explain your medication and any further treatment, and how your illness or injury is likely to change as you get better. If you understand all of this then you will be better prepared to manage your condition on your own.

Ask about your medication

Find out what each medication you have been given is for, and how it will work to improve your condition. Ask and make sure you understand how much you are supposed to take each day and when you need to take it. Make sure that you have a schedule to stick to and know whether you need to eat or not before you take your medication. The same goes for any medical equipment you have been given to manage your condition.

Prepare your family and friends

Make sure that your family and friends, or anyone else who will be taking care of you, know how to change gauze and bandages, administer medication and what to do if something goes wrong. They should also know how to watch out for any signs that you may need to go back to the hospital.

Get transportation

Liaise with your doctors and family members to work out how you are going to get home on your leaving date. The last thing you want is to be discharged and not be able to manage the journey home on your own.
