Discharge Information

Going Home

When your doctor determines that 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 assist you when it’s time leave.

Things to Remember
  • Discharge Instructions
    Your doctor and/or your nurse will provide you with instructions about post-hospital care. If you have questions about your diet, activities or other matters, please be sure to ask.
  • Medications
    If your doctor gives you a prescription, it can be filled at North Star pharmacy (located in the hospital) before you leave, if you wish.
