Day stay discharge
While in the second stage of recovery, you will be observed by the nursing staff, seen by your doctor (if possible), and given instructions for after care and any follow-up visits. Sandwiches and drinks will be offered and arrangements made for your discharge.
Staff will put together a discharge plan with you before you leave the hospital to ensure you understand your care needs at home. You must arrange for someone to escort you home. The preferred time of discharge is 10am.
Your doctor will be happy to help in any way they can. You will be given the appropriate numbers to call if required including an emergency (after hours) number.
