Clients are required to confirm with the front office assistant that all their charges have been posted in the system and also check with their ward sister that all their drugs to take home have been delivered in the ward.

At this point they can clear with discharges section who issues them with a blue discharge slip. This should be taken to the ward sister. NHIF cards should be presented on admission so that the rates can be calculated during discharge.

Discharge will take a maximum of 2 hours, where all the above are available. However, should it take more than 2 hours, contact the Charge Sister of the Hospital Directory you are in.
