Preparing for a hospital stay

There’s always some anxiety when you are preparing for a hospital stay. But knowing what’s ahead and how to prepare can help you feel better about things. At Detroit Medical Center, we want to do our part by offering several resources that should make that easier

Here you’ll find directions to the hospital, information on what to expect, a checklist for what to bring (and what not to bring), a guide to your rights and responsibilities as a patient, and important information on advance directives and other legal documents you may want to prepare before your hospital stay.
