Your Hospital Checklist

While in the hospital, we ask you to:

  • Make working hard in therapy your priority.
  • Always ask for help when getting up.
  • Tell your nurse or physician before pain becomes too severe. Take pain medication before your physical therapy session.
  • Do coughing and breathing exercises to prevent pneumonia. Use the incentive spirometer if ordered.
  • Wear support hose and do ankle pumps to prevent blood clots.
  • Notify staff members of any needs and requests you have during your hospital stay. We want you to be as comfortable as possible.
  • Bring a copy of your Advance Directive if you have one. Click here for more information.
