Obviously the reason that you have been admitted to hospital is so that you can get better from whatever injury or illness you are suffering from, so the point of your hospital stay will already be evident.
However, being in hospital does not mean your life has to pause for that time, and a hospital stay doesn’t have to be miserable and upsetting. Here are some things you can do to get the most out of your hospital stay.
- Ask questions. Many times people feel intimidated to ask questions when they are in the hospital, but this is your health and your experience so if you don’t understand something, ask about it. You should also feel free to ask what is going to happen each day and with each treatment, so that you are prepared.
- Find out what other options you have. If you are offered one type of treatment that you are not happy with, ask about the other options or do some research of your own to see what you can do. You may be able to shorten your hospital stay or make it more comfortable.
- Find out why you are being hospitalised. This will help you to understand your illness or injury better, and what the hospital will be doing to make you better. If you don’t know why you are in the hospital, then you may feel a little more resentful and a lot less comfortable.
- Let your doctor know if there are any problems. Don’t suffer in silence if you have any pain or problems, let your doctor know and tell them when you expect a situation to change.
