Finally, you’re out of the hospital. How do you ensure that you don’t go back anytime soon?
Getting discharge is good news. But, you are still not out of the woods. A lapse in your care can send you back to the hospital. To avoid that, Comfort Ease Home Care has put together tips to support your full recovery:
- Follow your prescription.
For your treatment to be successful, you need to take your medicine at the right time. If you have a tendency to forget about it, consider setting an alarm on your phone. This nifty trick will remind you in real-time about what medication you need to take at what time.
- Address your concerns.
Are there some other symptoms that you feel? Don’t pipe down. Ask your doctor about it before getting discharged. Make note of warnings signs to look out for. This helps you take the needed precautions to successfully prevent readmission.
- Ask your family member or friend to help.
You know how it goes… two heads are better than one. Get a trusted person to sit with you while you discharge instructions are given. You can also prepare a notebook ahead of time. There, you can easily jot down important notes for your discharge.
- Visit your pharmacy.
