Care after discharge

Mater Children’s Private Brisbane’s staff are dedicated to ensuring your child is provided the appropriate care after discharge.

If additional patient care information is required after discharge this will be provided on your child’s departure from hospital.

We advise you to plan ahead for your child’s discharge as much as possible. If you believe your child will require assistance once you arrive home, please do not hesitate to alert our staff. Should you require in-depth discharge planning for your child, Mater Children’s Private Brisbane nursing staff will arrange for a discharge coordinator to assist with your needs.
