They tell you that your child will be able to be discharged from the hospital soon and it strikes terror straight into your heart. Are you a good enough parent for your baby with a complicated medical issue? Can you identify when your child is in trouble?
Every parent has these fears and somehow hospital staff fail to convey one piece of information that will change your outlook That piece of information is:
You can call the hospital and ask a question any time you want.
Call the hospital switchboard and ask for the On Call Physician that’s on duty for your childs specific medical department.
That’s what they are there for.
Parents once they hear this tidbit instantly feel better and have called many times to trouble shoot different problems their child is enduring. So get the number that you need, put it in your phone or post it next to the fridge, just have it handy and use it.
