Your doctor will inform you when you are ready to be discharged. For your own safety, please arrange for a family member or friend to pick you up from the hospital.
The discharge process may take some time to allow the care team to complete processes such as the following:
- Contacting your next-of-kin about your discharge
- Preparation of discharge summary
- Preparation of medication
- Scheduling of follow-up appointments
- Counselling on post-discharge care
