We advise you to ask your doctor about your tentative days of hospital stay at the time of admission only, so that you can plan things accordingly. Please clarify your doubts time to time with your treating consultant on their visits so that there is no wastage of time on the day of discharge in chasing doctors for doubt clarification.
Your doctor will decide when you should get discharged. Prior to discharge, your physician or the treating team will advise you regarding the activity, diet, medications, precautions, if any, and subsequent follow-up visits to the Hospital. A discharge summary/advice will be handed over/ explained to you at the time of discharge.
The discharge process takes a minimum of 3 hours from the time of discharge advice given by the treating consultant. In case you are yet to undergo a procedure, visit by a referral doctor or any medication, in such cases, discharge process will begin only after the required procedure is done irrespective of the time of doctors discharge advice.
Discharge process consists of finalizing of the discharge summary, pharmacy return and indent/purchase of discharge medicine and final billing. You will be intimated by the ward executive about the time of finalizing billing. Once the billing is done you will be given a bill receipt by the billing department which you are supposed to show to the ward executive/sister in-charge at the respective nursing counter who will then give you your discharge summary which will be explained to you by your assigned nurse.
