At time of discharge, your nurse will review important instructions for you to care for yourself at home. Depending upon your diagnosis, we will give you printed information or booklets specific to your needs, medications and diet. You also will receive information about your medications, including any prescriptions your physician may have written.

Your discharge instructions will include information about when you should follow up with your physician. If your doctor has ordered home health or any equipment, we will provide the name of the company and their contact number.
