You are ready to go home and medically fit, we will transfer you to the discharge lounge to wait for your lift/hospital transport.

Things to make sure you have are:

  • Be clear about any medicines you are taking home with you. If in doubt, please ask a Nurse or Doctor.
  • Please check that you have taken home all your personal property.
  • Remind whoever is collecting you to bring any clothes you need for leaving the building, such as a coat or shoes.
  • Ask the Sister / Charge Nurse or Ward Clerk, in advance, for any medical certificates you may need, e.g. private insurance/health insurance claim forms.
  • If you need one, make sure you know the date and time of your follow-up outpatient's appointment.
  • Make sure you know any referrals to District Nurses or Care Agencies and when they may be coming.
  • Make sure you have a copy of your discharge summary.
  • Have you received appropriate medical advice following your illness, e.g., driving, diet, exercise and resuming normal activities
