      Being hospitalized can be scary, and the general feeling of helplessness and being out of control can contribute to anxiety. This can be remedied by getting as much information as possible before your stay. Prescription for Admission by Monique S. Nugent provides the background.

      The issue of hospitalization should be approached differently by those who have never been hospitalized before and by those who have been hospitalized several times due to the progressive nature of their illness.

      Regardless of the situation, it is essential to keep a checklist and be familiar with basic medical procedures that will contribute to your recovery. This book will prepare you for what to expect in emergency care, your daily routine in a hospital bed, and how to prepare for discharge.

      I remember the first time I was admitted to a hospital. Despite being a medic, I had to be counseled on how to deal with anxiety. I can only imagine the predicament of patients who have no clue about what is happening.

      Prescription for Admission by Monique S. Nugent has a wealth of information and is a must-read for everyone, including health practitioners. As the author points out, a well-informed patient will keep track of their progress, which will not only help them advocate for themselves but also ensure better outcomes. I loved the way Monique started by explaining the patient information captured on admission step by step. She has also gone out of her way to provide templates so the reader can practice filling in their particulars.

      Mental health is an issue that is often ignored, and more literature on the topic must be published. I cannot wait to read other works from Monique on medical matters.
