  • Patients - or in case of a minor, the parent/guardian must sign consent to discharge prior to leaving the ward area.

  • It is the responsibility of the member/patient to ensure ownership of all personal belongings, x-rays, prescription, sick note, etc. upon discharge.

  • Private patients will not be discharged before the hospital account is settled in full.
