The patient’s discharge plan is developed upon admission and is continually updated throughout the patient’s treatment.
The discharge plan will include the patient’s anticipated length of stay and approximate date of discharge. The discharge date is based on individual goal achievement rather than program completion.
The discharge date will be addressed and documented in the patient’s monthly progress summary.
The discharge plan will address the patient’s anticipated post discharge service needs including:
- Living arrangements upon discharge
- Level of care
- Type of services
- Medical needs
- Educational and vocational needs
- Clinical modalities
- Therapeutic interventions
- Community supports
- Parent advocacy organizations and other identified service needs
The discharge plan will also address, when appropriate, recommendations for the terms of continued probation. Contact the facility if you have any questions or concerns in regards to patient discharge.
