When You Leave

GOING HOME

We recommend that before admission you consider how you will manage at home after discharge. Will you require someone to stay with you after being discharged? How will you prepare food, do the housekeeping and shopping? Will you need any special aids?

If you would like to discuss your discharge needs prior to admission, contact the Pre Admission Coordinator on 9788 3699.

Your doctor will tell you when he or she thinks you are well enough to go home. Your Nurse will talk to you about any special services or equipment you may need after you are discharged. If required, our occupational therapist will consult with you.

Discharge time is usually between 9:00 - 11:00am. It is recommended that you arrange a relative or friend to assist you in getting home, or alternatively a taxi can be called for you by Reception staff.
