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.

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 here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
