The team offers a number of services to help patients discharged from hospital ensure a successful transition back into the community. The goal of the program is to keep patients in the community.
The team provides timely hospital discharge care in the office, community or at the patient's home. Hospital discharge visits from the team include individualized clinical appointments, medication reconciliation, and if necessary referral to other team members such as the registered dietitian or social worker.
The team also helps coordinate Telemedicine appointments for patients who require access to specialists out of town for their discharge care.
We aim to contact patients within 7 days of discharge. However, if you have been discharged from a hospital outside of Manitoulin Island, please let the team know as they may not be aware.
