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.
