I am sorry your parents where in the hospital

the social worker at the hospital should have helped arrange for follow up medical appointments with primary care doctors.

have you contacted the social worker at the hospital?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
no we didn't see one i was wondering if i should take them to a walk in clinic
Expert:  Dr. David replied 4 months ago.

you can take them to a walk in clinic to see if they can get more medications for their water pills there.

ask to talk to a social worker as well to see if they can help arrange for a sooner appointment with primary care doctors
