What are the Types of Discharge in the Hospital?

Types of Discharge

If you need little or no care after leaving the hospital, your discharge is called a minimal discharge.

If you need additional specialized care after your discharge from the hospital, this type of discharge is called a complex discharge. If you need complex care, you will receive a care plan with the details regarding your health and social care needs, such as the following:

  • The treatment and support you will receive after you are discharged from the hospital
  • How often treatment or help will be provided
  • Who will be responsible for providing treatment or support
  • Contact information for the person providing treatment or support
  • How the treatment will be monitored
  • The contact person if there is an emergency
