Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
After discharge from the hospital, both you and your child will need recovery time. Normal routines have been upset for the entire family. Just as it took time to get ready to go to the hospital, it will take time at home to recover.
Being home from the hospital requires some adjustment for everyone, and the recovery process will be different for each child and family.
When your child is discharged from the hospital, you will need time to talk about what happened and quiet time to collect yourself. Do things to help get back to a normal routine. Don’t expect too much too soon. Take the time you need.
