Discharge Information ¨C Picking Up a Patient

When patients are discharged there are a few different locations on campus where they can be picked up. Patients are brought to the first floor in a wheelchair, usually by Patient Transport staff. It is best to determine with the nursing and transport staff which location the patient may be picked up from. The pick-up location often depends on whether or not the driver will be with the patient at the hospital at the time of discharge, the location of the patient¡¯s room, and whether the patient has to wait for their ride after they are discharged. Pick up locations include: Main entrance (West Pavilion), East Pavilion entrance or the Discharge Lounge at the rear of the campus.
