Hospital Discharge Program@ Atikokan Family Health Team
Patients who are part of the community of Atikokan and have had a stay at the Atikokan General Hospital will receive a phone call from one of our RNs within 72 hours after they leave the hospital. The phone call is used to see whether or not you are managing okay now that you are home and if you need any further help. The RN may also come to your home to do a further assessment and offer more help if you are not managing well. We also have our Pharmacist review the list of medications when you are discharged and if there have been any changes to your medications she will call you at home to talk to you about the changes and answer any of your questions. The Pharmacist is Glenys Vanstone and she works for our Family Health Team. We offer this service in partnership with the Atikokan General Hospital. We work together to help you remain safe in your home.
