Time of Discharge

Please be prepared to leave the hospital at your scheduled discharge time.

Every effort is made to accurately predict the day and time of discharge, however, you should be prepared for your discharge to occur earlier or later than planned. Your health care team will keep you up-to-date on any changes to your discharge time.

It is the responsibility of you and your family to make transportation arrangements. Transportation is not provided by the hospital and the hospital does not pay for transportation when someone leaves the hospital. If a family member or friend is unable to pick you up at your scheduled discharge time, you will need to make and pay for alternative arrangements (e.g. taxi, stretcher vehicle).
