Residential Nurse Alert to the Rescue
The purpose of hospital care is to treat. For those in need of specialized, high-level care, hospitals are designed to carefully monitor progress, keeping its patients stable with teams of expert practitioners and carefully coordinated regimens. When hospital care succeeds, that means the patient is well enough to leave, preferably for the comforts of home. But back at home, without that support system (and often with new medications and/or careful instructions to follow), taking on the responsibilities of care can be an abrupt transition.
