Once your consultant feels you are ready to go home and decides to discharge you, the discharge process involves several activities. It can take up to two hours to complete the process. The nurse will assist you in preparing to leave.
Certain formalities for discharge need to be completed by you. The payment needs to be cleared by cash, draft or credit card and a vehicle needs to be arranged for your departure. Your nurse will hand over the discharge summary to you, after the required formalities have been completed. She will also explain any medication / aftercare at home that need to be continued by you.
Before you leave, you may meet the dietician for advice on do’s and don’ts about food and your nutritional needs. Also, the physiotherapist will be able to advise you about exercises that may help you recover fast at home. Discharge Process would approximately take 2-3 hours after your consultant has ordered for final discharge.
