Leaving the hospital

Question: My friend has been admitted to the Royal-Victoria Hospital. He has a physical disability and uses a wheelchair. He was transported by ambulance to the hospital, and the technicians did not want to transport his wheelchair. I was wondering how he get home once he is discharged. He has no family and cannot take a regular taxi because of his disability.

Answer: Your friend should inform his medical team of this situation. We ask a that a family member or friend bring the wheelchair to the hospital just before he is discharged so that he can leave the hospital using adapted public transport or an adapted taxi.
