Before you come to the hospital, we encourage you to view the video Staying Safe in the Hospital: Patient Essentials. You'll find it in the Health and Wellness section. With the ever-increasing complexity of medical treatments, hospital procedures and medications, learning to prevent falls and hospital acquired infections is important. This video talks about communicating effectively with hospital staff and the need for every patient to partner with their healthcare team to keep themselves in good health.
