Discharge And Home Healthcare Guidelines

The child with muscular dystrophy has multiple admissions and discharges. Because multiple dystrophy is a chronic progressive disease, teaching needs to vary according to the interventions and phase of illness. The muscular dystrophy team and the MDA are the best sources of providing information to the patient and family in a timely manner. Encourage the child and parents to maintain peer relationships and foster intellectual development by keeping the child in school as long as possible. Teach the patient and family ways to avoid respiratory problems. Encourage the parents to report respiratory infections as soon as they occur.
