Hospital to Home Explained Simply

Healthcare is moving so fast that it is hard to keep up. All of a sudden you are in the hospital, and you do not know what is going on. Who are these people? What does CBC mean? What is a CT scan? How long will that take? Will it hurt?  
On this site I will explain all of it to you in normal everyday language.
From your choice of going to the ER or to Urgent Care. The discharge process. Tests, diagnosis and everything in between and more.
A one stop shop to explain it all, in a way that everyone can understand.

What is Healthcare ABC?

Imagine that you have been healthy your entire life and then all of a sudden you find yourself in an emergency room. It can be very scary. It can be very confusing. The hospital is a totally different world. Most people have a hard time finding their way walking around the hospital let alone understanding what is going on inside of the hospital.

So many of my patients tell me that they have no idea of what is going on, and they are scared. Scared of their illness. Scared of losing control over their life. Scared about what is going to happen next.

 

My name is Dr. Melanie Enderwick. I work in the clinic, and I work in the hospital. I have been board-certified in Internal Medicine, Infectious Diseases and Wound Care for many years. I have been a doctor since 2007. I have worked in both the United States and Canada.

If you see my name written it will look like this:

Dr. Melanie Enderwick, MD, FACP, CWSP, FRCPC

What do all those letters mean after my name? Lots of doctors have those written after their names. How does one even become a doctor? Why should I trust this doctor? What to specialists actually do? What was that diagnosis again? What is this medicine for? Should my poo really look like that? What is a "provider"?

 

At Healthcare ABC, I will explain all of these questions and more. I will make the hospital a place that you will understand. I will explain all of the things that sometimes you feel shy to ask about. If everybody else around you can understand what is going on, you should too.

 

Take some time to look at videos that might apply to your situation or the write ups I have in the blog section. Look at list of common abbreviations, feel free to print them out if you need.
