Discharge Guide

Patients will be discharged from the main hospital entrance at 235 State Street. Staff from St. Croix Health will be available to assist you with wheelchairs, navigating you through the building, and answering any questions you may have.

After Discharge

Your medical needs do not always end when you are discharged from the hospital. Our team will provide you with all the resources you may need to continue any medical care outside of the hospital.

In cases where a patient will have difficulty living alone, your provider and social worker will discuss options for home care or assisted living as a permanent or temporary solution. Other options for post-discharge care include rehabilitation hospitals and long-term acute care hospitals. These facilities have resources to dedicate to your long-term recovery.

You should notify a medical professional if you experience any of the following after your discharge:

  • Unexpected nausea or vomiting
  • A fever of 101 F or higher.
  • Inability to urinate within 8 hours after surgery
  • Unexpected and frequent pain
  • Increased redness and sensitivity around a surgical wound
  • Odd odors coming from a surgical site
  • Bleeding through dressings
