Preparing for your return home from the hospital:

During your stay, your doctor and the staff will work with you to plan for your discharge. You and your caregiver (a family member or friend who may be helping you) are important members of the planning team. You and your caregiver can use this checklist to prepare for discharge. Questions include information on medicine and future appointments with your doctor.
 When you return home from surgery, you want your home to be as safe as possible so you can recover quickly. This gives you and your family ways to make your return home safer.
