Discharge Information

On day of departure, patients should ensure that carers and or family members are aware of the discharge day and discharge process. Where possible, it is preferable for patients to be released to carers or family members on discharge.

Discharge Information:

Discharge time is scheduled for 10am on a patient’s day of departure.

Transport arrangements can be made on the day before discharge. If a patient requires ongoing home care, our staff will make a referral to the appropriate community service department(s). There may be some out of pocket expenses incurred during your stay and we ask that these are settled on discharge.

If a patient requires a return to South Coast Private to participate in day care programs, arrangements will be made to cater to the specific needs and circumstances.
