Check out time is 11:00 a.m. on most units. Your physician will determine when you are ready to go home and a discharge order will be written. Before you leave, your doctor and health care team members will give you instructions for your continued care.
Prior to leaving the hospital, a staff member may meet with you to discuss your “next steps” in regaining full health. This might include assistance with daily living or nursing services at home, rehabilitation services, nutritional guidance, or specialized medical treatment. The staff will make all the arrangements per your physician’s orders.
