SCRMCDischarge Guide

Discharge Guide

Patients will be discharged from the main hospital entrance at 235 State Street. Valet service is available to assist you with parking, wheelchairs, finding your way through the building or other questions. We advise that all patients make use of this service, regardless of age.

After Discharge

Your medical needs do not always end when you are discharged from the hospital. During your discharge, our team will provide you with all the resources you need to continue your medical care outside the hospital.

In cases where a patient will have difficulty living at home alone, your provider and social worker will discuss options for home care or assisted living as a permanent or temporary solution. Other options for post-discharge care include rehabilitation hospitals and long-term acute care hospitals. These facilities have resources to dedicate to your long-term recovery.

Should I Go Back to the Hospital?

In the unlikely chance that you experience serious discomfort after your discharge, you should contact the hospital or your primary care provider for help.

  • Inability to urinate within 8 hours after surgery
