Covid-19 Recovering Patients Need Care and Support

Patients recovering from Covid-19 need care and support

Patients recovering from Covid-19 who are discharged from hospital may continue to need care and support as many of them could develop persistent psychological difficulties as a result of their experiences of illness and treatment, say new guidelines from the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) as per COVID-19 Information & Resources.

Some recovering patients may also present with varying degrees of communication or cognitive impairment, NHS said, adding that the impact of Covid-19 on patients is a rapidly-evolving picture and comprehensive data is not yet available on all aspects.

So primary and community health services should work with families, care homes and domiciliary care to support the provision of holistic care for patients discharged from hospital after Covid-19.

There is evidence that patients with Covid-19 experience a high prevalence of thromboembolic disease in which blood clots form in blood vessels, according to the NHS.
