Social Work

Social Workers are highly trained health professionals who work with you to help your well-being and ability to function well in society. They work as part of the health care team, and play an important role in coordinating many of the other health services you may need while in the hospital and to prepare you for going home.

When you are in the hospital, you may get a visit from a Social Worker who will assess your general well-being. If you have any concerns about factors in your life that might affect your health care and your recovery in the hospital, you should talk to a Social Worker.
