Leaving the Hospital
We Guide You Through Discharge
A discharge planning nurse is available to help you and your family plan
for the care that might be needed after leaving DCH. The discharge planning
nurse can refer you to other agencies for help in your own home and can
assist in making arrangements for transfer to other living arrangements,
i.e. nursing homes and adult foster care homes. You can ask for this help
directly or have your doctor or family make a request for you. Before
leaving, be sure to check your room to be sure that you have not left
any personal belongings behind.
