  • How long does the discharge process take and why?

    The discharge process takes on average four (4) hours. After the doctor has discharged the patient, the file is then reviewed by the nursing staff, pharmacy, lab and any other service centre, and eventually by the billing staff to ensure all services have been captured from the file. At the end of this process, a final bill is presented to the patient for payment after which they are free to leave. The nursing staff always provide medication on ward.
    For patients who are under insurance, a final bill is then sent to the insurance company prior to you leaving the hospital and a guarantee of payment is sent in relation to the final bill. It should be noted that in some instances, insurance companies will take some time to send through this guarantee of payment thus causing further delay to the patient.
