What steps should I take at the end of a hospital stay to ensure a smooth transition home?

Before you leave the hospital, make sure you have in writing what your medicines and doses should be when you arrive home. If some of the medicines you were taking before hospitalization are not on the list of medicines to take after, ask why. Also, ask your pharmacist to check your new combination of medicines for potential drug interactions or anything that you may be allergic to.
