Primary Care Hospital Discharge Clinic

 

MUSC Health Primary Care offers a Hospital Discharge Clinic with Katherine Foote, D.O. The Discharge Clinic specializes in follow-up visits after a hospital stay. This clinic was created for adult patients who do not have a primary care provider or who cannot see their provider in a timely manner.

Dr. Katherine Foote will also see patients as a follow-up to an emergency room visit, or even to avoid a visit to the ER for non-emergency needs.

During a visit with Dr. Foote, she will:

  • Assess patients for continued improvement after their hospital stay/emergency room visit
  • Order and follow up on blood work
  • Discuss a continued or new medication
  • Continue education on patient’s condition
  • Discuss factors to help the patient avoid another hospitalization

Dr. Foote will also initiate age-appropriate health care screenings and address chronic conditions. If a patient does not have a primary care provider, Dr. Foote will assist with establishing care with a MUSC Health Primary Care provider who is well-suited for their location and medical situation.
