Going Home

Before you leave the hospital, you will be given detailed discharge instructions. Whoever is taking you home needs to be on hand when these instructions are given so someone else can hear about them, too, even though they will be written down for you. If questions come up once you are home, call your doctor’s office. When you are discharged, your doctor may order medications for you. You may have these medications filled at one of Swedish’s pharmacies or the pharmacy of your choice.
