Hospital-at-home often possible
« on: August 31, 2016, 04:01:21 pm »
Some medical providers are finding that patients needing hospital care can be cared for just as well (or better) in their own homes, with some adjustments in the way things are done. 

Anyone who's ever been hospitalized probably felt that the food and rest needed for a rapid recovery were sadly inadequate in the hospital setting.  Hospital-at-home just may be a good solution for many.
