Discharge & Follow-up Visits

Discharge & Follow-up Visits

The consultant incharge of the patient will decide when it is advisable for the patient to leave the hospital. A discharge summary or discharge advice will be explained and handed over to the  patient / attendants, for follow up treatment at home. Copies of all the investigations are made available to  patient from time to time during your hospitalization.

Prior to discharge, your Doctor will advise you regarding the plan of action, diet, medication precautions (if any) etc. to be followed, and subsequent follow - up visit to the hospital. Please follow the instructions carefully. After the discharge, you may contact, your Doctor by calling telephonically on 011-47022222 for clarifications, if any.

It is important that you arrange to leave by discharge time, so that we can prepare the bed and the room for new admission. It takes about 3 hours for the discharge formalities to be completed after doctor advises discharge. If you are unable to leave by 12 noon, bed charges for half a day are added for the stay till 6:00pm, beyond which full day charges are billed to the patient.

Follow-up Visits

You are required to come for follow up visits in the Outpatient Department, as advised at the time of discharge. It is advisable, to take prior appointment, for  follow up consultation visit. This will enable your consultant to assess your progress.
