Discharge against Advice
- Patients, who will leave the Hospital against their attending physician’s advice, will be required to sign a “RELEASE FORM RESPONSIBILITY” / HAMA (Home against Medical Advice) Form.
Discharge Cut-Off Time
- Discharge cut-off time means that all necessary documents have been sent to the Billing Section for final computation and payment by the patient. If the discharge cut-off time is not met, the patient will not be processed for discharge for that day.
- Patients tagged for discharged before 1:00 pm will be charged as ½ day hospital stay, while those tagged for discharged as a full day hospital stay.
- A “Discharged Cut-Off-Time” set at 3:00pm will be followed to allow proper processing of payment and discharge of patient for the day.
