If you have ever been severely injured or ill, you may have had to spend time at an Iowa hospital – like the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City, or St. Luke’s Hospital or Mercy Hospital in Cedar Rapids. As a patient, there’s a lot going on around you – new or changing medications, procedures you don’t understand or are uncomfortable with, and hospital staff giving you instructions that may be confusing or complicated. It’s not surprising that most people feel overwhelmed in this situation.
The list of questions below can be used to prepare you both for your time at the hospital and recovery at home.
Write down the answers to these questions and keep these notes in a safe place for reference.
