Do you need to make a ‘no win, no fee’ Gedling claim after receiving medical care at home?
When people are seriously ill, or if they require medical treatment, they are often admitted to hospital as an in-patient. In addition to receiving the treatment they need, their condition can be monitored to ensure that it’s safe for them to return home.
However, there are some instances in which it may be appropriate for people to receive medical care in the own homes, rather than in a hospital or clinic. If, for example, you’re recently been discharged from hospital, you may be visited by district nurses on a regular basis. They may assist with any on-going medication, such as injections, which prevent patients from having to stay in hospital for an extended amount of time.
When a sudden injury or illness occurs, people often receive treatment at home before being transferred to hospital. Paramedics, for example, will often begin treatment before the patient is placed in an ambulance. Depending on the severity of the injuries, this initial medical care can help to save lives and prevent injuries from becoming even more serious.
Of course, when you receive any sort of medical care at home, medical staff must ensure that you’re treated appropriately. Once they leave, you may not have access to any medical help so it’s vital that you are able to left alone or with family.
