Patient Discharge

Patient discharge

When it is time for you to go home, your doctor will write a discharge order.

Discharge Instructions

Instructions will be explained fully to you by your nurse. These may include specific instructions regarding any medication, treatment or special diet you may require, as well as the date and time of your next doctor or clinic appointment.

Our planning staff will arrange for any special needs you may have, such as medical equipment or home health visits. St. Margaret’s Hospital offers comprehensive discharge planning on all floors covering any services you may require at home.

Personal Belongings
