Q What should I do when my child comes home from the hospital to help prevent a wrongful death claim?
Your child is finally right where he belongs again—home. After his surgery, or an illness or injury that required him to spend time in a hospital bed, you’re relieved to finally have him back under your roof. However, if you aren’t given the proper instructions on how to care for him, his condition could become worse. Here, a wrongful death lawyer discusses what to help prevent this from happening.
Talk With the Doctor
Discuss the treatment plan with your doctor and make sure you fully understand all of the aspects. Know precisely which medications to give your child and when. Additionally, inquire about limitations on your child’s activities, and find out when he can resume with his normal life.
Learn the Treatments
Some illnesses and treatments require at-home care, and you might be the person who has to administer them. Have the doctor or nurse go over the procedure with you and practice it until you are completely comfortable, and have it right.
Know What You Should Be Looking for
Know what symptoms or signs to watch for. Sometimes, clues of infection, or other problems are subtle and are only detected when you pay very close attention. Make sure you know exactly what to look for upon returning home.
