Your child's nurses, case managers, and physicians will be working together with you as soon as your child arrives in hopes of getting your entire family together again at home. When your child's physician writes the discharge orders, this begins the process to go home.
You will need to make arrangements for your departure. It's the law that young children are in a car seat or booster seat when traveling by car. As early as possible, let your nurse know if you are having difficulty obtaining a car seat for travel home.
Your nurse and other members of your healthcare team will help your family learn how to take care of your child at home.
