• If you are discharged from hospital, you receive a doctor’s letter and a nursing letter. The letter contains e.g. examination findings, recommendations for further therapy or medication.
  • Have these explained to you in detail while you are still in hospital, if necessary with an interpreter.
  • Give the doctor’s letter and the nursing letter to your family doctor.
    Keep a copy for yourself.
  • If you have to take medication, you must know precisely:
    What you have to take, when and how, for how long and how often?
    What are the effects and possible side-effects of the drug?
