I am a nurse working in an intensive care unit in the UK, and I'm interested to know what information ICU patients and their relatives were given in preparation for transfer to the general ward. I'm keen to improve the ICU discharge experience for patients and families. Were you just given verbal information, did you receive a general ICU booklet, or did you receive a personalised discharge summary (providing information on your critical illness and your experience in ICU? How did it help or hinder your move to the ward? I'd welcome responses from ICU patients or any relatives of someone who spent time in ICU.
