After hospital care is a service given to individuals who have just been discharged from the hospital and need further attention. This type of care is often rendered in the patient’s home by a team of the hospital’s authorised medical personnel.
In times past, individuals admitted to the hospital were allowed to stay there until they had appropriately healed before going home. However, the case is different today as more circumstances require hospitalisation, and the available hospitals cannot allow over-stays. An example of this fact is the Coronavirus. Often, individuals are usually discharged before they heal entirely, and several of them will need extra care at home after their discharge. Hence, the need for after hospital care.
Due to lack of awareness, some discharged patients do not receive further care and may return to their former sick states. For this reason, the government advises after hospital care for improved and perfect well-being. Usually, this care should be done with the consent of the hospital who treated the patient.
