Discharge and aftercare

Discharge management

The Johanniter Hospital Treuenbrietzen carries out discharge management in accordance with Section 39 (1a) SGB V.

After the treatment is completed, the patient is discharged from the hospital. In certain cases, however, further support is required after the hospital treatment is completed in order to ensure the treatment outcome. This follow-up care can be, for example, medical or nursing care in an outpatient or inpatient rehabilitation facility, but also making appointments with doctors, physiotherapists, nursing services or self-help groups, as well as support in applying for benefits.

The aim of discharge management is to organize seamless follow-up care for patients. To do this, the hospital determines whether and which medical and nursing measures are required following hospital treatment and initiates these measures during the inpatient stay. If it is necessary for follow-up care, medicines, remedies and aids and home nursing care can be prescribed to a limited extent and incapacity for work can be determined.

The patients are informed and advised about all discharge management measures by the hospital, all planned measures are coordinated, if desired also with relatives and / or caregivers.

The patient's written declaration of consent is required to carry out discharge management, which can be revoked in writing at any time.
