After your physician has authorized your discharge, a member of the nursing staff will assist you in checking out. Arrangements should be made with a friend or family member to pick you up as soon as possible (at the East Canopy) after you have been discharged in order to facilitate the arrival of new patients.
Check your room carefully for any items you may have overlooked while packing. You may pick up any valuables you have stored in the hospital safe by presenting your receipt at the Security Office.
Birth Center Patients
West Virginia law states that infants under one year of age, and weighing less than 20 pounds, must be placed in a rear facing car seat securely anchored at all times, even on the way home from the hospital.
Car seat safety inspections may be scheduled through the Monongalia county Sheriff's Department and the Star City Police Department.
When you return home from the hospital, we hope you will tell us how well we met your expectations. We welcome your evaluation of our care and the manner in which it was delivered.
You will receive a questionnaire from the hospital within one week of your discharge. We truly appreciate your completing it and returning it to us. Your input will help us make improvements so that we may continue to provide the best possible personalized care.
