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.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
