Hospitalisation à domicile, France: a first-hand account

  • Freda Clarke


The French Public Health Code describes the functions of public hospitals thus:

‘Hospitals provide for the examinations necessary for diagnosis and for preventive medicine, as well as for the treatment (with or without hospitalisation [present author’s italics]) of the sick, the injured, convalescents, and pregnant women, including … necessary functional rehabilitation .... They are open to all those whose condition requires their services.’(1)
