After Your Stay & Medical Records
Discharge from the hospital to home requires the successful transfer of information from provider to the patient and family to reduce adverse events and prevent readmissions. Engaging patients and families in the discharge planning process helps make this transition in care safe and effective.
Please pay close attention to your medication instructions upon discharge. You will be sent home with paper instructions, but please be sure to ask questions to confirm your understanding of your medication schedule.
