What to Expect During Your Hospital Visit

Many patients believe that the more you visit, provide support and offer a listening ear, the better they feel. How can you help the ones you love? You can start by educating yourself about your loved one's condition and treatment options. By learning about their health care needs, you can provide the right kind of support and care.

Here are some simple ways to help prepare for your upcoming procedure or hospital stay:

  • Prepare a checklist for the hospital stay
  • Plan a route to arrive at the hospital on time or early. 
  • Pack small, uplifting personal items to decorate the room, such as photographs
  • Create a list of approved visitors. Stick to the list to ensure you don't become overwhelmed or caught off guard
  • Talk through everything in advance
  • Learn the names of medical team members and communicate clearly with them
