|A medical social worker is available to counsel patients and family members, regarding emotional, social, and financial problems that may be causing stress or interfering with treatment.|
Referral to local community agencies is used when additional support or follow-up is needed. A request for assistance from your social worker may be made by you, your physician, DCH staff, or a family member.
Patients are reminded that during your hospital stay, all of your medications will be ordered by your physician. Using medication that has not been prescribed by your doctor for your use during hospitalization may be harmful.
