Tips for Creating a Safe and Effective Transition Back to Home
- Understand the Risks. Making sure they take their medication on the proper schedule is very important. It is also important to understand the enhanced injury risk due to their weaker condition. Your goal should be to manage their medication schedule and make life as easy as possible for them during this post-hospital period.
- Listen to Medical Professionals. Speaking directly to medical professionals will allow you to understand their medication needs, avoid and minimize risk factors, and seek the right type of outside help.
