Washington Health System Washington Hospital Patient Information

You and your family are important to us. In order to provide you with the best possible treatment, your care will be managed by a team of health professionals composed of physicians, nurses, case managers, therapists, dietitians, technicians, and other health care professionals.

 

Your nurse will talk with you and your family to determine your care needs and involve you in decisions about your plan of care. Along with your doctor, the nursing staff will check your response to treatments, follow your laboratory studies and other special tests, and monitor everything related to your hospital stay.

 

A major goal of our staff is to help you regain your health and independence as soon as possible. If you are moved to a different unit, your plan of care will continue to be implemented and communicated with other health care team members to ensure that your care, teaching, and needs upon discharge are met.

 

One of the most important aspects of your care will be your preparation for discharge, in order to make the transition from the hospital to your home a smooth one. Our hospital professionals will work with you and your family to make arrangements for any special discharge needs that you may have.
