When You Leave

Together Creating a Happier Healthier Northern Mallee

Discharge from Hospital

For your safety, you are required to have a carer (family member, friend etc.) to assist you with transport and support when you arrive home following your stay. Please inform nursing staff prior to your surgery if alternative transport options are required (i.e. if no carers are able to assist in your transport or care). Before you leave, please ensure you have all your personal belongings returned to you, any required medications, medical certificates (if required), and details around follow-up appointments.

Self-Discharging from Hospital

Patients self-discharging will be asked to sign a “disclaimer” as the responsibility rests entirely with you. Except in certain cases, patients have the right to leave hospital as and when they choose.

Transport Home

Patients will need to make their own arrangements for transport home. Please refer to our ‘Visitors’ page for more information on parking and alternative transport. Please make sure you have also read our discharging form the Hospital sections before planning your departure.
