Discharge And Home Healthcare Guidelines

Advise the patient to quit smoking, avoid excess alcohol intake, maintain adequate nutrition, and avoid exposure to crowds and others with upper respiratory infections. Teach appropriate preventive measures. Be sure the patient understands all medications, including the dosage, route, action, and adverse effects. Instruct the patient to abstain from alcohol while on INH, and refer for eye examination after starting, then every month while taking, ethambutol. Teach the patient to recognize symptoms such as fever, difficulty breathing, hearing loss, and chest pain that should be reported to healthcare personnel. Discuss the patient's living condition and the number of people in the household. Give the patient a list of referrals if she or he is homeless or economically at risk.
