Patient Discharge Information
It is very important for you to understand your medical condition and the plan that you and your care team have for your continuing care.
When you doctor determines that you no longer need specialized inpatient hospital services, he or she will issue discharge instructions and orders. Your nurse will review the instructions with you so that you understand your continuing care needs. Arrangements will also be made to assist you to your vehicle or ride home.
