Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act which will require insurance
companies to cover a minimum 48-hour hospital
I am appalled as an Intake RN to see referrals for women with less than 24 hour stay in hospital, sent home with only 2 days authorization for homecare!!! Having been ther with my mother after her surgery, I saw her have complications after 24 hours.
I've cared for MANY mastectomy patients who are not taught about long term side effects of surgery and that arm exercises are important in post op period to prevent lymphedema later.
