What should I do if I’ve been discharged from the hospital too early?

First, don’t try to handle this all by yourself. “You need someone to speak for you. It’s like buying a car. Never do that alone,” said Dr. Aaron Lazare, chancellor and dean of the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Ideally, you should have an advocate with you, a friend or relative you know and trust. You can also call your regular, primary care doctor and ask him or her to help.
