Definitely. They should not release him unless he is able to safely get home and be cared for appropriately. If he is not strong enough, then he will go to a sub-acute rehab/nursing facility where he will get some rehab until it is safe for him to come home.

Ask to speak to the case manager and/or social worker, and tell the surgeon your concerns.

Also agree with asking for Home Health services to be prescribed by the doctor for once he gets home. The doctors will be happy to do this. These can include nurse visits, physical therapy, occupational therapy, social worker and more.
