When you are ready to go home, your doctor will write a discharge order. Your nurse will give you written instructions as per your doctor's order for follow-up care, medications and follow-up appointments. Please review the discharge summary with your nurse, sign and take your copy.

Please make transportation arrangements once notified you will be discharged from the hospital.

Ambulance transportation can be arranged for medical reasons only on the recommendations of your doctor.
