Post hospitalisation

Post hospitalisation, when a child or young person is discharged from hospital, behaviour may be slightly different before admission.Your child may cling to familiar adults, have temper tantrums or regress.This behaviour should fade over time, but at home the child will need time to adjust to his/her own routine.

Listen to your child when you go home – he or she may need to talk about what has happened in hospital.
