We have a discharge hub at the North Devon District Hospital (NDDH) which provides a comfortable, safe environment and better experience for our in-patients on their way home.
The discharge hub at NDDH
The discharge hub is located on the ground floor (level 0) at the link corridor entrance, and is open from聽7am to 7:30pm, Monday to Friday. It is staffed by nurses, healthcare assistants and pharmacy staff.
This bright and spacious area provides a comfortable and pleasant experience for in-patients on their way home and is equipped with comfortable chairs and beds. There is a disabled toilet, with a raised seat and showering facilities.
To get to the hub, take the lift to level 0 and start to walk along the link corridor. You will see the hub sign posted on the right.
The hub staff are happy to collect medications from pharmacy, once the patient is in the hub. They can also collect patients from the ward once they are ready to go to the discharge hub.
The lounge is able to provide tea, coffee, sandwiches, fresh fruit and juice. There is a TV, plus magazines for patients to read whilst they are waiting to go home.
