What must include a discharge summary report?
A . The patient’s financial account
B . The patient’s final condition
C . The patient’s insurance details
D . The patient’s next of kin
A discharge summary report may include all of these details, but it is essential that it include details of the patient’s final condition. If this is not provided, ensure you obtain it from the patient’s physician. When this is not properly recorded it could open the way to legal action should the patient develop later complications.
