Can going to the hospital harm my health?

You probably go to a New York hospital to get better. You expect to go in, get well and leave. For some people, though, this is not the case. They go in and get sicker or experience complications due to the environment. Forbes explains that hospitals have various ways they can actually make you worse than you were when you came in.

One way a hospital may harm you is through exposing you to germs. You may think that a hospital is a sterile environment, but that is far from the case. While workers do try to keep the hospital clean, the reality is that people who come into the hospital are sick. They bring germs with them. If the staff does not follow proper protocols, germs get spread from one person to another.

Mobility issues are also a concern. Consider the last time you were in the hospital. The chances are the staff wanted you to stay in bed. They often do this because you have IVs and monitors attached to you and they do not want to risk you falling. However, staying in bed for a while can cause muscle weakness and joint stiffness. This may cause lasting effects.

Finally, being in the hospital can be psychologically difficult. Staff will wake you at all hours of the night and day to run tests or take blood. They may give you medications that disorient you. You may not get fed as often as you are used to. In addition, the bright lights are disorienting. This can all create confusion and mental upset.
