From Consumer Reports: Your hospital survival guide

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation organized a month-long effort to focus attention on the national problem of people returning to the hospital soon after they are discharged and to shine a spotlight on how hospitals and communities are working to limit avoidable return trips to the hospital.

As its contribution to the campaign, Consumer Reports is offering consumers these free guides to a safe, successful hospital stay.
