Admission: This is the process of officially checking into the hospital and being assigned to a bed or room. During this stage, you will be asked to provide personal and medical information, sign consents for treatment, and be assigned a healthcare team.


Diagnosis and Treatment Planning: The next step is for the healthcare team to assess your condition and determine the best course of action. This may involve running tests, consulting with specialists, and determining the best treatment options for you.


Treatment: Once the treatment plan has been established, the healthcare team will start implementing it. This may include medication, procedures, and therapies to help you recover.


Monitoring and Recovery: During this stage, the healthcare team will closely monitor your progress and adjust your treatment plan as needed. They will also provide support and care to help you recover and prepare for discharge.


Discharge: When you have fully recovered or have reached a stable condition, you will be discharged from the hospital. The healthcare team will provide you with instructions for follow-up care and any necessary medication.
