When your physician decides you are ready to leave the hospital, a discharge order will be written. You may want to make arrangements with a family member or friend to help you when it is time to go home. Some important things to remember concerning:
Your physician and your nurse will give you instructions about post-hospital care. If you have questions about your diet, activities or other matters, please ask.
Before leaving your room, double-check all closets and drawers for your personal items. Citizens Baptist cannot be responsible for personal items left in patient rooms.
When you are ready to leave, a member of the hospital staff will escort you to the front entrance and help you into the car.
