Preparing To Go Home

DISCHARGE INFORMATION 

Patients are discharged after they have been cleared by all providers and the nurse has completed the discharge process. They will be taken to the pick-up location, usually the West Pavilion entrance, by a member of our transport team. View a map of the TGH campus. 

 

TGH PHARMACY 

The TGH Pharmacy is located on the first floor of the Harbourside Medical Tower. It is a convenient location to fill your prescriptions at the time of discharge and is open Monday – Friday, 6:30 a.m. - 8:30 p.m. and Saturday – Sunday, 7 a.m. - 7 p.m., with the exception of holidays.

Please call ext. 7688 to find out if the TGH Pharmacy is a provider for your prescription insurance.

PICKING UP A PATIENT AFTER DISCHARGE FROM TGH

When patients are discharged, there are a few different locations on campus where they can be picked up. 

Patients are brought to the first floor in a wheelchair, usually by Patient Transport staff. It is best to determine with the nursing and transport staff which location the patient may be picked up from. 

The pick-up location often depends on whether or not the driver will be with the patient at the hospital at the time of discharge, the location of the patient’s room, and whether the patient has to wait for their ride after they are discharged. 

Pick-up locations include: 

  • Main entrance (West Pavilion)

  • East Pavilion entrance 

  • Departure Lounge at the rear of the campus.
