Better Care at Lower Costs - Do I Need to Be Hospitalized?

If you need inpatient care, get in and out of the hospital as quickly as possible. This will reduce costs and your risk of hospital-acquired infections. For more information, see Navigating Your Hospital Stay. To avoid extra days in the hospital, you may be able to bring in extra help at home. Ask about home nursing services to help while you recover.

If you have a terminal illness, hospitalization may not be your only choice. Many people choose to spend their remaining time at home with the people they know and love. Special arrangements can be made through hospice care programs in most communities. For more information, see the topic Hospice Care.
