Fast Track Discharge

A fast track discharge plan is for patients with a rapidly deteriorating illness who may be entering a terminal phase.

The aim of fast track discharge from the hospital is to transfer the patient to a preferred place of care, provide support for family and caregivers, and enable a peaceful death in the preferred place.

  • Fast track discharge from the hospital involves five steps:
  • Communication and anticipatory care planning
  • Symptom control and 24-hour care needs
  • Documentation
