When You Leave
You and your family will be notified about the day and time of your hospital discharge. You should not leave the hospital before being formally discharged by your physician.
The Magee team will work closely with you and your family to set up an individualized discharge plan. Discharge time is 9:00 a.m. Please discuss with your case manager if you will require a later discharge time.
On your discharge day, you will be taken to the main lobby exit. Any charges not covered by your insurance, such as the additional cost for a private room or telephone, are payable at the time of discharge or you can be billed.
Following inpatient treatment your options may include outpatient therapy, Day Rehab or follow-up appointments with your Magee physician. An outpatient case manager will be available to answer any questions you may have and notify you of all follow-up appointments after discharge.
At Magee, your opinion counts. After your stay, you will receive a satisfaction survey in the mail at home. Please take a few minutes to complete and return the survey. We use your feedback to recognize employees for a job well done and to improve our services for our patients. We thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts with us.
You may also be telephoned 3-6 months after your discharge so that we may ask you about how you have been doing since you left the hospital. Although this information is very helpful to us, you are under no obligation to provide it.
We offer a variety of support groups for patients and families. For more information call 215-587-3412.
