Your discharge from the hospital can mean going home or being transferred to another hospital closer to home. If your child’s health condition permits, and you are in agreement, you or your child may be transferred to a partnering hospital in your community.
In order to prepare the room for a newly admitted patient, you must vacate the room no later than two hours after signing the hospital discharge form.
Before leaving the hospital, make sure to collect all of your personal belongings along with the following:
Any leaflets or training programs provided to you by the nurse or health care professionals;
All of the doctor’s medical prescriptions;
All appointment cards indicating the date and time of your visits to any outpatient clinics;
A medical note for your child’s school, if required.
During your child’s hospitalization, you were perhaps told that your child would have to be referred to a rehabilitation centre for a motor or language disorder. If your child requires specialized rehabilitation services with hospitalization, The Marie Enfant Rehabilitation Centre will admit them to their Functional and Intensive Rehabilitation Unit.
For children who live in Montreal and who require specialized rehabilitation services for a severe motor or language disorder on an outpatient basis, they will be referred to one of the CRME’s programs. For children who live outside of Montreal and who require ultraspecialized rehabilitation services, they will be referred to the CRME. For children who live outside of Montreal and who require specialized rehabilitation services, they will be referred to a rehabilitation centre in their community.
To learn more, you can visit the CRME’s website.
If you have any questions or need information about your return home, speak to your nurse or attending doctor.
