Leaving Poudre Valley Hospital
The doctor's order to discharge you is the first step in the discharge process.
Whether you are going home after you leave the hospital or you need some extra time to recover at a rehabilitation facility or nursing home, your doctor and our staff will work together to ensure a smooth transition from Poudre Valley Hospital.
Your nurse, along with other members of the health care team, will provide you with after-care instructions (medications, activities, etc.) including follow-up appointments.
For your convenience, a member of our financial staff will come to your room for your check-out. If you have special needs, our case managers and discharge planners can provide you with local resources and more information.
