Your plan for discharge starts even before you are admitted. We understand that this plan may change throughout your stay as your medical status changes. At the family conference, your discharge plan will be discussed with the team. At that time, we will make sure your plan is aligned with our plan and answer any questions you may have.
Your physician will write a discharge order in your chart and discuss your release with you. This may be a transfer home, with or without home health services to a sub-acute facility to rehabilitation services or to a nursing home.
Our Medical Management Department has nurse case managers and social workers who can assist both you and your physician with the appropriate referral to the services mentioned above, as well as other community resources. Please call 404.501.6294 for more information.
