A trip to the hospital can be an intimidating event for patients and their families. As a caregiver, you are focused completely on your family member ʼ s medical treatment, and so is the hospital staff. You might not be giving much thought to what happens when your relative leaves the hospital.
In some cases, it is simple. For example, you might be expected to leave hospital in 2 days with certain medications, and you might be told to see your GP 2 days after you get home.
