Discharge GuideDischarge Process:
Post your treatment or surgical procedure, you will be in recovery for a few days as advised by your doctor. When he is satisfied by your progress, your doctor will advise you for discharge. The discharge process will be carried out in the following steps:
- Upon the doctor’s direction, the Duty Medical Officer will prepare your discharge summary which is reviewed and signed by the concerned doctor.
- After medication reconciliation, the nurse returns any extra medication to the Pharmacy.
- All your documents like radiology reports, lab reports and ECG reports are accumulated by the Floor Executive, and the final bill is generated.
- In case you are covered by insurance, the bill and a copy of your discharge summary will be sent to the insurance company. If the bill amount is equal to the approved insurance amount, the bill is settled. Else, you will be required to pay the difference in amount to settle the bill.
