What Do You Really Need to Know About Your Discharge?

It can be scary to leave the hospital after a major illness, injury or surgery, especially if your care needs have changed.

At TIRR Memorial Hermann we begin planning for your discharge early, so that we can make sure you have the right training, education and support to help you feel prepared for discharge.

As part of our team approach to discharge planning, we will make arrangements for all the supplies, medications, equipment and services you may need after discharge. Our care teams work with a wide network of providers to set up your services.
