Going Home


Your physician will advise you of the day you may leave the hospital. Please allow at least one hour  from the time your physician has informed you of your discharge for the nurses to complete all necessary paperwork. Your discharge planning nurse will bring the papers to you in your room and explain any discharge orders.

Reminders

A few reminders as you prepare to go home:
    • Remember to keep all records of bills, insurance forms, payments of claims, receipts and other papers because many of these expenses are tax deductible.
    • If you plan to change your residence, give the admitting office your new forwarding address for any mail or gifts that might come to you after your discharge.
    • Follow your doctor’s recommendations for your continued recovery.
    • If you require continued care and meet qualifications, our nurses and therapists can help you complete your recovery at home. Ask us about our homecare.
