Question
Hi Joy,
What is the name of the department that is responsible for the patient's exit in hospitals?

Answer
Hi Hashem

The department responsible for the patient's exit in hospitals is case management.  Case managers coordinate the patients discharge from the hospital and the continuum of care to ensure they get further care or treatment once they leave.  

I hope that answers your question.
