However nervous you may have been on entering the hospital, it is likely that you will be even more nervous when it is time to leave. Because you have been completely taken care of during your time in hospital, and always knew that there was a team backing you up if something went wrong, suddenly having to be on your own and look after yourself can be nerve wracking. Here are some tips for preparing yourself to leave the hospital.
- Listen to your doctor. Make sure that you listen to everything your doctor is telling you, as it will come in handy after you leave. Be an active participant in these conversations as well, asking questions and making sure that you really understand what you are being told, and what happens next.
- Learn your medications. You will already be on medications at the hospital so learn the routine and times, and make sure that you continue to stick with it on your own, and without being told by the doctors what you need to do and when you need to do it.
- Know how to use any medical equipment. If you are given anything to take home with you, such as a heart monitor, or crutches, get lessons in the hospital from your doctors on how to use it, and don’t give up until both you and they are satisfied that you really know how to use it on your own.
- Teach your family and friends how to take care of you. Anything which you are not able to do for yourself will have to be taken care of by your loved ones, so teach them how before you leave the hospital.
