It is our goal to help you return to your home and recuperate
just as quickly as possible. Planning for your discharge begins the day of your
admission. The nursing, case management and social service staff, along with
your doctor, will assist you or your family with any special needs or
arrangements for your care. A comprehensive booklet is available, through the
nursing and/or social service staff, should you need homecare services after
your discharge from the hospital. If at any time after your discharge you
believe that you need assistance, do not hesitate to call your attending
physician or contact the Case Management Department at 270-7910.
When your doctor notifies
you of your discharge, please have someone readily available to take you home.
Upon discharge, the nursing staff will review the discharge instructions
including medications, restrictions, and follow-up care with you.
