aid in the recovery of a severe back injury.

Any information would be so helpful, my husband was just badly injured in a car accident and is in the hospital. I'm thankful that he is alive but the reality is beginning to sink in that we need help to recover from this.



  • I'm sure physio and OT have seen him? He will probably do well with physio's plan that he starts in the hospital. Homecare is who you need to talk to. This Nurse supplies everything you'll need at home including visiting Nurse if ordered and any help with homecare that you'll require. Be sure to talk to them on Monday before hubby's discharge. Also talk to the Pharmacist about his meds while he's in the hospital and learn any side effects and things to watch for. If you're equipped in the hospital you'll be able to handle anything at home and you won't have to worry so much. Take care. Charry
