Registered nurses provide nursing care twenty-four hours a day. Your nurse will assess your care needs and ensure that you are supported during your hospitalization. S/he will work with your hospitalist or surgeon and other members of your care team to plan, coordinate and communicate all aspects of your care with you while you are hospitalized. A nursing technician will assist your nurse with your care. Prior to your discharge, a nurse will review discharge information with you and/or your family members. Please feel free to ask questions regarding any aspect of your post-discharge care.
