When You Go Home
You will receive written instructions for your home care before leaving the hospital. Be sure that you understand these instructions and follow them carefully. Check with your care team and doctors if you have questions or concerns.
To plan for your care at home, ask your doctor or nurse about:
- Any new medicines you will be taking
- Warning signs for when to call your doctor
- Your follow-up care
- What kinds of activities are safe to do (climb stairs, exercise, weight limits, etc.)
- Any special equipment needs
