Your physician determines when you will be discharged from the hospital. When your physician decides you are ready, a discharge order will be written, and you may begin preparing to leave the hospital. You should make arrangements for a friend or family member to assist you in the discharge and departure activities.
When you're getting ready to leave, make sure to collect all of your belongings - double-check closets and drawers. Before departing, your physician will provide instructions about post-hospital care. If you have any questions about your diet, activities or other matters, please be sure to ask. For your convenience, prescriptions can be filled at the Park Court Pharmacy, located just inside UnityPoint Health-Pekin's main lobby.
Once you are home, you will receive a patient satisfaction survey in the mail. Please remember to complete this survey and return it to us... your feedback will help us continue to fulfill our mission of being the healthcare provider of choice in the communities we serve. We hope your visit was a "Very Good" one!
