Being discharged from the hospital is a good thing. However, when we get home, we often forget what the doctor told us, or the notes they gave us do not make sense to us. Do you know that studies show that 40% of patients over 65 had medication errors after leaving the hospital? Do not take the risk of readmission due to poor instructions.
To help you capture all the information you might need at discharge, Medicare has created a helpful checklist for you to review with your medical team. In addition to the checklist, Premier Homecare Services will assist you in making the transition from Hospital to Home.
Get the information before your leave, so you’re not left wondering what to do.
