Anticipating Inpatients' Needs

My Get Well Kit

Patients arriving at Suburban Hospital for treatment will now receive My Get Well Kit, a folder of material designed to help them understand and navigate their hospital experience. Developed jointly by the hospital’s Patient and Family Advisory Council and the Patient Education Committee, the folder includes a notebook, a new patient handbook, a medication record wallet card and a back pocket for education materials, along with an after-visit summary that lists which medicines to stop and which to take. The goal of the kit is to help inpatients and their family members participate in their own care and to allow them to record and review important information during their hospital stay.
