Hospital Discharge Planning

Preparing for a hospital procedure or stay in an acute care hospital can be a very confusing experience. There are many things you should ask about in advance.

In addition to discussing the specific medical procedure with your doctor, it is also important to take charge of your hospital discharge planning before you are in the hospital.
