Going Home

When the members of your child's health care team, including their physician, determines it is time for your child to be discharged from the hospital, you will begin having conversations with the team to start the necessary planning. 

The day of discharge you will receive a discharge notice and instructions. These instructions include:

  • Follow-up care
  • Information on managing care at home
  • Pain management
  • Medication instructions
  • Medical equipment instructions
  • Home care assistance
  • Overall safety
  • Diet restrictions  

Feel free to ask your nurse any additional questions that you might have.
