Discharge team

We help patients to return home from the hospital safely and conveniently. The medical staff assesses if the patient needs the help of the discharge team.

We provide short-term assistance, care and guidance during the first two or three days after return to home. Patients who need long-term assistance are referred to home care or other appropriate services. The need for home care is assessed by Nestori – Guidance and Service Counselling for Senior Citizens.

The discharge team collaborates with the patient’s relatives, home care and other personnel involved in the care of the patient.

The discharge team will take the patient home and assess the patient’s need for services for free. The fee for other services is the same as for temporary home nursing. The patient will only be charged a single fee per day even if several visits are made. If the patient already uses home care or hospital services at home, the assistance of the discharge team is free of charge.
