Your physician will determine your discharge date and will write a discharge order. Once you have been discharged, please make plans to check out of the hospital as soon as possible, as your room may be needed for another patient. In most cases, when you are ready to leave, you will be taken to the lobby by wheelchair.
If you have questions about your discharge plan, please ask your nurse or care coordinator.
After discharge from the hospital, patients, guardians or parents of minor patients may receive copies of medical records for a nominal charge after submitting a written request. For more information, call ext. 63307.
If you require home health services or placement in a long- or short-term nursing/rehabilitation facility, a care coordinator or social worker will work with you to coordinate these services. Inova VNA Home Health, Northern Virginia’s leading agency for providing care at home, brings skilled and caring healthcare services directly to you, in the comfort of your home, following surgical procedures or hospitalization. Call Inova VNA Home Health at 571-432-3100. A list of other providers and suppliers is available from the Case Management Department at ext. 63508.
Patient Satisfaction Surveys
The most valuable feedback we receive is from you – our patient. As part of our commitment to provide excellent patient care, many of our patients are surveyed to measure their level of satisfaction with their hospital experience. You may be asked questions relating to:
- Communication with your nurses and doctors
- Responsiveness of staff
- Pain management
- Cleanliness and quietness of our hospital
- Discharge and medication information
- Overall ability to recommend us as your healthcare provider
The survey is conducted via postal mail or email after you return home. All surveys are anonymous unless you sign your name to both mail and email. Your feedback helps us identify opportunities for improvement, and recognize those areas in which we excel.
