Admission & Discharge



When your health care needs have been met, your Doctor will let you know you can go home. Your Nurse and sometimes other members of the Health Care Team will help you make arrangements to go home. They will provide all the information you require for discharge.

Discharge occurs at SJGHEL before 11:00 a.m. for most patients. Prior to leaving the Hospital, please ensure that you have all your personal belongings, Health Card, as well as discharge instructions and any prescriptions provided.

It is important that you understand all instructions about your medication, diet, activity, and any follow up appointments. If you are unsure about what you need to do at home, ask your Doctor or Nurse before you leave the Hospital.
