Transfer nurse / discharge
Before your hospitalization or admission, it may be beneficial to think about the time after your discharge, when you will be able to go home. You may not be able to (fully) count on your personal network for all the help or support that you need, despite being dependent on it. Our transfer nurse can help you and your loved ones arrange the care you need.
Your practicing physician can let you know on which day you will be discharged from the hospital. The nurse at your ward will discuss the care and assistance you will need at home and can call on a transfer nurse if needed. They will schedule an appointment for an intake consultation with you.
If you are not hospitalized at our hospital, you can contact our Patient Information Center for more information about arranging additional care.
What can we do for you?
Within the legal frameworks, we can organize the essential professional care for you, in collaboration with you and your loved ones as well as other disciplines involved. We can assist you in:
- Home care (such as continuity of care)
- Temporary stay at a care facility or rehabilitation center, for example
- Request aids and resources
For you to consider:
- If you think that you may need help with work around the house, please contact the WMO office at your municipality.
- If you know that you will need aids or resources after your treatment, please contact the thuiszorgwinkel (home care shop) in your area. If you have any questions, please contact our Patient Information Center.
- For more information about the cost of care (home care, temporary stay at a nursing home or care hotel), please contact your health care provider.
