Discharge Procedure & Time

Your doctor will advise when you can be discharged.

Do check with the ward nurse for the discharge time. To ensure your well-being, we advise that a family member or a friend be with you on the day of your discharge.


  • Discharge Procedure


Our staff will assist you in your discharge procedures:


- Arrange for follow-up appointment at the Specialist Outpatient Clinic, if necessary.
- Give you the medicine that your doctor has prescribed and advise you on the medicine usage.
- Teach basic self-care procedures and health education so that you can manage on your own at home.

Reminder :

- Follow the medication instructions and keep the follow-up appointment with the doctor.
- Check bedside cabinet and wardrobe to ensure no personal items are left behind.
- Withdraw any personal items that you may have placed in the safe, or with our Patient Service Centre.
- Return all hospital gowns, children's pyjamas, baby vests and blankets.
