Why is this important?

Patients are discharged from inpatient rehabilitation programs when their needs have been met, or when they are ready to transition to services provided in the community. A discharge plan with input from the whole health care team is recommended to ensure good communication between clinicians and that the patient continues to have their needs met within the community.
