The day of your discharge, we call your personal physician and ask to schedule you a follow-up appointment or to call you. Usually, your physician will want to see you within one to two weeks.
In addition, our Hospital Medicine Discharge Follow-Up Nurse will try to call you within 2-3 days of your discharge to see how you are doing.
If you haven't heard about your post-hospital appointment within 5-7 days of your discharge, you should call the advice center and ask them to check on your appointment. Their number is (408) 554-9800.
