Discharge and Going Home

You should talk with your doctor ahead of time to find out what you should expect based on the surgery you’re having. There are often many instructions to guide your care and recovery once you leave the hospital.

Prescription & Health Care Supplies

If prescription medications or other health care supplies are a part of your discharge plan, the hospital pharmacy can deliver these items to you so you don’t have to make an additional stop at an outside pharmacy.


The hospital does not provide transportation. You should make arrangements with a responsible adult to take you home. You will not be able to drive yourself home following surgery.
