After Your Care

Arranging Your Discharge
Your doctor will determine when you are ready to go home and will order your discharge. Please make arrangements for your transportation home at this time to prevent unnecessary delay. You will be given instructions about follow-up care, medications, etc., before you leave.

In preparation for your discharge, Sentara Albemarle Medical Center can arrange a variety of care and services for you. If you call (252) 384-4580, our discharge planning staff will be happy to show you how to secure home care, home health aides, and a variety of other community health services, including how to enter a nursing home or a similar facility if required.
