Nobody likes to go into a hospital. But, if you ever need to be in one, you can review this checklist as you plan what to bring along with you.
Ask to talk to the hospital's Diabetes Nurse Educator, and have the nurse educator review your capabilities do "Self-Care" (to take care of yourself, as you do at home). Sometimes he/she will be able to write orders in the chart that authorize you to do some of the things that you routinely do at home.
