1) Make sure the patient’s safety is maintained and that they continue to recover. To do this, you will need to ensure their safe return to home, provide them with any necessary medications, or give instructions on how to follow up, as well as make sure they know what symptoms to watch out for in case of a worsening condition.
2) Teach the patient how to self-manage their illness. This may include tips on proper nutrition, stress management, and exercise. Providing resources (e.g. support groups, community programs, etc.) for additional assistance can be helpful.
It is important to schedule any needed follow-ups with your primary healthcare provider or specialist as part of your discharge plan. This will ensure that you are able to track any changes in the health status over time.
