    Dks

    Government hospitals discharge patients home early.
    I think the above is correct.

    He feel unwell after his discharge home.
    I am not sure whether the above is correct?

    Do you write the words 'after his discharge home'?



    Patients were discharged from hospital as they got new patients.
    This is correct.

    Discharge home

    Hospitals discharge patients early.
    This is fine.


    He felt unwell after his discharge home.
    I am not sure whether above is fine.



    Do you say discharge home?


    Patients were discharged from hospitals as they got new patients.
    This is correct.


    I want to know about the words ‘discharge home’.
    It sounds unnatural for me.

    Re: Dks

    I've never met 'discharge home'. Patients are either 'discharged' or 'sent home'.

    I'm not sure what you mean by your last example, which you say is correct. What do you want to say? Either 'There was a constant stream of patients. As fast as they were discharged, new patients were registered' or 'Regardless of their state of recovery, patients were discharged as soon as their beds were needed for new patients'?

    No. Government hospitals discharge patients before the patients are well enough. As has already been said "discharge home" is incorrect. If you use "early" people may think that you mean at, for example, 8.00 in the morning.

    He feel unwell after his discharge home.
    I am not sure whether the above is correct?
    No. He felt unwell after he was discharged.

    Do you write the words 'after his discharge home'?
    No.

    Patients were discharged from hospital as they got new patients.
    This is correct.
    No. Patients were discharged because/when new patients arrived.
    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Dks

    Thanks for the replies.


    He was ill and admitted to hospital.
    The hospital discharged him and now he is at home. However, he felt unwell again.
    In this case, do you say the following?

    He felt unwell after his discharge home.

    Have you bothered to read the responses people have taken the time to post? That question was answered in post #3 and #5.

    You wrote the title Dks. Surely you are not also asking the question "What is/are Dks?" You need to tell us why you used it as the title.

    Re: Dks

    Thanks for the replies. This question is from my husband.
    Our friend 5jj wants me to read the replies 3 and 5 again. The reply 5 is a blank one.

    The reply 3 is the following:
    I've never met 'discharge home'. Patients are either 'discharged' or 'sent home'.

    I'm not sure what you mean by your last example, which you say is correct. What do you want to say? Either 'There was a constant stream of patients. As fast as they were discharged, new patients were registered' or 'Regardless of their state of recovery, patients were discharged as soon as their beds were needed for new patients'?
    .................................................. ...........................
    So I assume it is incorrect to say 'discharge home'.
