What to bring with you?
Responsibilities of Patient and Family
To make the discharge process as easy as possible, it would be helpful if you and/or your family would:
When you are discharged, you will be given instructions to follow once you leave the hospital. You may also be given prescriptions for medicine and a follow-up appointment time with your doctor and/or other health care professionals. If you have not received any follow-up instructions or do not understand them please ask your nurse before you leave the unit.
Hospitals are responsible for providing care that meets the needs of the people living in the area that they are serving. Making sure that patients are discharged as soon as they no longer need an acute care bed is part of this responsibility.
It is the policy of Windsor Regional Hospital to transfer patients that are waiting for a bed in a long-term care facility to the first available bed, where their care needs can be safely met until a bed becomes available in their chosen facility.
To help patients and families during this difficult and stressful time, Windsor Regional Hospital's staff responsible for discharge and the Erie St. Clair Local Health Integration Network caseworkers will work closely with patients and families to help them fill out forms, offer advice, answer questions and provide support.
For more information, please view the WRH Discharge Policy.
There are specific delivery times for each unit so please ask your nurse for your specific meal delivery time or the operator when you place your order.
If you are placing an order from outside of the hospital, please call 519-254-5577, ext. 43663.
