When your doctor decides you are ready to leave Edwin Shaw Rehabilitation Institute, he or she will write an order for your discharge. Please have your driver park by the main entrance. A staff member will escort you to the entrance and remain with you until your transportation arrives.
Before You Leave
We will give you information about your medicines, when you can go back to work, school or other activities. If you are unsure of what you will need to go home, you can ask about:
- A complete list of medicines you should be taking (how and when you will get them)
- Foods you should and should not have
- Special needs (such as having assistance at home) or equipment
- Follow-up doctors' appointments or tests
- Symptoms that will alert you to call your doctor
- Activities you can and cannot do
- Flu and pneumonia vaccines
Taking an active role in your care has many benefits. Together we can help you achieve the best possible health. If you have questions regarding your going home instructions, contact our primary care doctor or specialist.
