Discharge Information 
 
 

Discharge Planning
Planning for your discharge begins with admission.  You, your family, and a multidisciplinary care team consisting of your physician, a case manager, and nurse are all involved.  Your individualized discharge needs will be coordinated by a case manager, physician, and other members of the healthcare team.  In the event you are unable to return home, your case manager and a social worker will assist you in identifying available resources and acquiring the appropriate placement based on your level of care needs.  Please discuss your needs or concerns with your physician or case manager.

Post Hospital Care
Any questions or concerns about your care after hospitalization should be discussed with your doctor or nurse.  Written instructions and information will be provided at the time of discharge.
