At the time of discharge, patients will receive a discharge summary with detailed instructions about testing, and a medication schedule, which should be discussed with the transplant coordinator. Patients also receive a copy of the investigation chart, and a blood sugar and blood pressure monitoring chart, which they should be familiar with and learn how to fill.
After discharge, patients are required to undergo tests and visit the post-transplant clinic every 5-7 days. They should therefore stay in the vicinity of the hospital for 4-6 weeks after discharge. The house where the patient would be staying after discharge should be prepared best to prevent incidence of infections.
