Discharge Procedures

Discharge Procedures

Consultants decide when a patient is fit for discharge. Discharge normally occurs during working hours and is completed before noon, where possible, to avoid additional day charges. Time taken for discharge may take upto 3 hours. Before leaving the hospital, patients must ensure the following:

  • A discharge card is issued
  • Copies of all reports, X-Rays etc, are kept handed over to them
  • Instructions for follow-up care are received and understood
  • Personal belongings have been collected

Follow Up Treatment

Follow-up visits and treatment are normally administered at the out-patient department or the consultants consulting rooms.

Note: Billing, after checking with all departments may take about 3 hours.
