Discharge home - is 7 days too long?

On the asthma brochure it suggests "Arrange follow-up with primary health care professional within 7 days or as soon as possible" with regard to Discharge Home. Is that too long? I've usually be suggesting that they see their PCP within 3 days if possible. Can the RN or RT review the d/c instructions with pt or family?
