Welcome to the Discharge Co-ordinator Department Web Page
On behalf of the patient, the Discharge Coordinators advocate to achieve the best possible outcome endeavouring to discharge each individual to a setting most appropriate to their needs.
The Discharge Coordinator Dept provides a comprehensive discharge planning protocol aimed to assist the transition between hospital and home/community care. The aim of the dept is to help reduce patient length of hospital stay, prevent or delay readmission, enhance patient outcomes post discharge and lessen the burden of care on the families. The four members of the discharge team provide a seamless continuity of communication ensuring consistency in the services.
The discharge planning protocol features the following services: a comprehensive assessment process addressing each individual’s unique needs, projecting post discharge needs and liaising with patient, family/carers, PHNs, GPs, Continuing Community Care Services and all members of the hospital multidisciplinary team, to ensure care transfers smoothly to community services.
