Can You be Discharged from the Hospital on a Weekend?

Discharged Hospital on Weekend

Yes, you can, but this is rarely the case. Most hospitals discharge patients during the weekdays. Research finds that people discharged from the hospital on the weekend are nearly 40 percent more likely to be back on Accident and Emergency within a week. Discharges from the hospital rarely take place over the weekend.

In some cultures, there is even a belief that leaving the hospital on Saturday is bad luck and will mean early readmission to the hospital.
