Before You Are Discharged

If you plan to return home after a stay at our hospital and require community assistance, a liaison nurse from Community Care Access Centre (C.C.A.C.) will help you. A staff member will assist you with the next steps.

All Ontario hospitals must ensure prompt discharge of patients who no longer require hospital care or when alternate care can be provided in the community. This ensures that adequate medical services are available for patients who need to be admitted in acute care. Your cooperation is important in this matter.
