Hi
Thanks for posting on HCM
Jaundice can be a symptom of liver disorders or infections.Since he is responding positively to treatment, changing the hospital may not be the best option.Since it has be established that jaundice is due to liver infection, i will suggest you discuss your financial situation with your Doctor.Depending on the number of days of hospital treatment he has had, your Doctor may send him home on oral relay treatment depending on the type of liver infection.Regular reviews may be planned and he will be followed up from the house.I will advise he takes enough water as well.
Hope my answer will help you
Best regards
