Going Home

As glad as we are to take care of you when you need us, we are even happier to see you go home. Since your admission to the hospital, a CarolinaEast Continuing Care Coordinator has been working to make sure your transition home is successful.

Our staff will share discharge instructions with you and answer any questions you may have about after-hospital care. Your doctor may feel that you need continued care in your home. The CarolinaEast Health System Home Care team can provide you with all the healthcare you need in the most comfortable of all settings, your home.  This includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists, dieticians, social workers, aided and psychiatric nursing. Personal Care services are also available for personal needs and light housekeeping.

When your doctor writes your discharge orders, our staff will help you gather your personal belongings and call upon a volunteer to take you to your car. Should financial arrangements need to be made, assistance will be given by our cashiers and your patient counselor.

If necessary, please follow-up with your physician to ensure your recovery is on track. Remember, we are here when you need us, but we really prefer you not need us!
