Discharge from the ED
Your caregivers will discuss your discharge plans with you. Specific instructions for follow-up care will be given to you in writing along with any needed prescriptions. If you have any questions about your care or instructions, be sure to ask.
Also at the time of discharge, a co-payment process is set up for your convenience. Once you have left the Emergency Department, fill your prescription as soon as possible and follow the instructions for taking them.
Before you leave, make sure you have the following:
- Written discharge instructions
- Prescription orders, if needed
- Your belongings
- All your questions answered!
Greenwich Hospital charges for the use of the emergency facility and for the services of hospital physicians and physician assistants. The hospital also charges for X-ray, laboratory and pharmacy services, and for medical supplies.
Medical consultants are available 24-hours a day and may be called in at the discretion of the emergency physician. Most are private practitioners and not employees of Greenwich Hospital. All consultants, including radiologists, send a separate bill.
Greenwich Hospital staff provides individualized attention to all patients, including helping patients understand their insurance benefits. For more information, see the Billing section of this web site.
