Don't Let Complications Complicate Your Hospital Stay


There are often so many nightmare stories about hospital stays in the news and media these days. In fact, there are so many that you might think that staying in hospital is a lot more dangerous than trying to get better at home on your own!

That really isn’t the case, though - in fact, the only place you are going to get the best possible care is in a hospital. So, despite all the nightmare stories, you should always head to your nearest hospital if your doctor sends you.

Don’t want to end up in your own nightmare story? Here are some tips to ensure everything goes as well as it should during your hospital stay.

Get Insurance

First of all, it is absolutely important to get the best possible insurance before you ever fall ill. You can take a look at the different types of insurance policies on websites like https://www.ehealthinsurance.com/new-york-health-insurance. As you will see, there is a wide variety of different policies on offer. Ideally, you need to go for the best that you can afford. When it comes to insurance, the more expensive policies will come with more perks and benefits, so you don’t have to slum it in hospital.

Don’t Leave It Too Long

You should go and see your doctor as soon as you are feeling sick. The longer you leave it, the more your health might decline and by the time you end up in hospital, you could be a lot more likely to develop some significant health complications, which could lengthen your recovery time. So, as soon as you think that you need to be in hospital, so and see your doctor so that he or she can send you there with the required paperwork.

Claim For Compensation

If you end up staying in hospital for a prolonged period of time, you might end up running into some financial problems from not being able to work. As you can see, then, it’s worth trying to get all the additional finance that you can find. You should be able to claim compensation if you are hospitalized because of an injury that wasn’t your fault. Speaking to an attorney like https://www.derricklawfirm.com/practice_areas/south-carolina-car-accident-attorney.cfm can help you figure out whether you have a valid case. They will then be able to fight on your behalf in court.

Watch Personal Hygiene

One of the main reasons for medical complications in hospitals is poor hygiene. All hospitals need to be as clean and as sterile as possible so that there are no germs or bacteria in the building that could cause the patients any health problems. While you are staying in hospital, you will need to be extremely meticulous when it comes to your personal hygiene so that you don’t end up infecting yourself of the other patients.

If you are careful and practice plenty of common sense, you shouldn’t have too many problems with complications during your hospital stay.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
