A plan for discharge and future care will be explored with you and, as necessary, with your family and the nursing care and medical staff, in seeking the best outcomes for each individual.
Once this plan for discharge and future care has been determined, you are informed that you are ready to be discharged and you are given assistance in taking the necessary practical measures to this end.
Once these practical arrangements have been made, a discharge date is discussed and the plan for discharge and future care along with the practical arrangements for this are shared with you.
When you are discharged, a medical report including multidisciplinary management details is sent to your attending physician.
