The discharge coordinator makes arrangements to ensure that a patient’s care is not interrupted once they return home.

They organise the provision of care at home, according to the patient’s needs and situation.

They are responsible for contacting the various healthcare professionals outside the Centre (independent nurses, pharmacists, the patient’s general practitioner, service providers, care networks, home care assistants, etc.) who will help ensure that the patient receives the best possible care while they are at home.

 

The patient, their friends and family, and healthcare professionals outside the Centre may all contact the nurse. The nurse is your first point of contact.

You can contact them whenever necessary.

 

Depending on the care required at home, the discharge coordinator may decide to schedule regular telephone calls to ensure that no difficulties arise and to make any adjustments required.
