Shepparton Private Hospital

When You Leave

We recommend that before admission you consider how you will manage at home after discharge. Will you require someone to stay with you after being discharged? How will you prepare food, do the housekeeping and shopping? Will you need any special aids?

If you would like to discuss your discharge needs prior to admission, contact the Pre Admission Coordinator on 03 5832 1200.

Your doctor will tell you when he or she thinks you are well enough to go home. Your Nurse will talk to you about any special services or equipment you may need after you are discharged. If required, our Occupational Therapist will consult with you.

Discharge Information

  • If you are having a day procedure, you must be escorted home by a responsible adult and you must remain in their care overnight and where possible for 24 hours.

  • It is important that you do not drive, sign legal documents, use public transport, work machinery or consume alcohol until at least the next day, but preferably for 24 hours post procedure.

  • Your friend or relative will be informed of your expected discharge time.

  • Discharge time for overnight patients is 10.00am.
