Can I Be Discharged When Hospitalized Because Of Dengue Fever And Low Platelets?

, I want to ask. Now I am being treated at the hospital due to DHF. My platelet count is 91000 even though it has gone up, but the level is still not normal. The problem is that my doctor advised me to go home. Is that allowed or not ??

1 Answer:

Hi Aditya,


There are various things that doctors consider in advocating for outpatient, inpatient or discharge after discharge, namely:

Patient's complaints, even though the examination results have improved, the patient may still have complaints so that it becomes a consideration to delay the patient's return
Physical examination, in addition to complaints of physical examination that does not fit the normal value can also be a consideration for the doctor delaying the return
The results of investigations, the normal range of platelet examination ranges from 150,000 to 450,000 per microliter. Platelets themselves are useful for the process of blood clotting. Platelet levels below normal still have a risk of bleeding so that it can be considered by doctors to delay discharge
Disease course, some diseases can worsen or improve with certain patterns so that this can also be a consideration for your doctor to postpone repatriation to prevent worsening
Doctor's experience

Even if there is an increase in platelet levels in your condition, it does not mean that you have fully recovered and that your doctor may therefore delay your discharge. If you are not clear about this I highly recommend that you discuss directly with the doctor who treats you to get an explanation that suits your condition.


May be useful,
