Hospitalisation can sometimes feel like a period of turmoil. This feeling does not automatically vanish upon discharge from the hospital, when a patient might feel overwhelmed and powerless on an emotional, relational and social level.
The Europe Hospitals want to accompany the patient, throughout this difficult period, in handling his/her administrative work, financial matters and the continuity of post hospitalisation care. This is why the patient is the main concern of the social service, and we will treat the patient with respect, doing all we can to meet his/her preferences, needs and personal values. The accompaniment is a free and confidential service that can be provided before, during or after the patient’s hospitalisation.
