post operative care

Going Home

No hospital stay, however comfortable, can match the comfort of your own home and we at Gleneagles Global Hospitals perfectly well understand your desire to head home at the earliest possible. We factor-in your eagerness to return to the comfort of your home against the need you may have to stay in the hospital for observation, treatment and/or a possible contingency. Rest & recuperation can be achieved at home, but in certain cases it is important to have a sterile environment with constant observation for a few days. Prior to returning home you must also have a thorough understanding of the care that must be ensured at home and the subsequent visits you ought to undertake. A pre-discharge checklist provided herein give you a brief snapshot of the things you must consider & complete. Please note, discharge from the hospital is neither the end of treatment cycle nor complete cure, it is an important milestone with a few more before you are fully healthy & well.
