What do you mean by what do they look like?

Customer: replied 9 years ago.
I need a sample discharge paper from a hospital, to verify employee paperwork.

You would need to call the hospital involved, since just about every hospital designs its own paperwork, and no two would be the same. All discharge papers would give at a minimum the name of the patient, dates involved, whether prescriptions had been written and directions for taking the medication, any specific follow-up instructions, the name of the doctor, and when to follow-up either with the admitting doctor or the primary care provider.
