Hospital Discharge Planning

We want you to safely and comfortably come home from hospital and stay there.

A poorly executed discharge from hospital can see patients deteriorate at home and return to hospital unnecessarily if the right equipment and supports are not in place.

With planned admissions we can see you at home prior to hospitalisation and make plans for equipment, modifications and services to support you on discharge. This approach has great benefits particularly if there could be a lead time to implement a recommendation such as installation of a ramp or rail.

In hospital we can communicate and coordinate with your in hospital team to ensure a planned approach so that equipment and supports are in place, including external care such as nursing or personal care worker assistance.
