Recovery care after leaving hospital
Leaving hospital can be an anxious time for everyone. We’re here to help – from liaising with the discharge co-ordinator to ensuring a safe return home.
Each hospital has its own discharge policy and a discharge co-ordinator is available to help coordinate the planning process that we and the family can support and manage together, and it’s important that the necessary support has been put in place.
The key steps from the hospital include:
- An assessment to see if they are medically fit to be discharged
- A discharge assessment to see if they need support once discharged
- A carer’s assessment to assess support once discharged
- A written care and support plan which outlines the support required.
On the day of discharge, we can work with you to ensure:
- Appropriate transport is organised if required
- You are given copies of the care or support plan
- A discharge letter is sent to the GP within 24 hours
- Medication and any equipment needed at home as well as instructions and information about its use is provided.
An assessment will be made as to whether you are eligible for any intermediate or re-enablement care, NHS continuing healthcare or NHS funded nursing care, other NHS services and/or community care services from the local authority.
We will work with you to liaise with the necessary teams such as nurses and therapists to make sure that if you are eligible with a package of care, we help manage the areas that aren’t covered.
