For the discharge of the patient a request will have to be first made at the reception desk to initiate the process. The request can only be made by the person authorised to do so, the attendant/relative of the patient. All hospital dues will then be required to be settled and the ‘no-dues’ form will be submitted before the discharge summary and slip can be granted. The discharge process takes a minimum time of 2-4 hours. The attendants and relatives of the patient must factor in this point before applying for discharge.
