Parents may be in a fog when children come home from hospital

A new study in Pediatrics found that parents caring for children discharged from the hospital have a difficult time transitioning home and report significant stress and feeling as if they’re “in a fog.” This may make it harder for parents to process information, such as instructions for their child’s care.
