Signifier may require the subjunctive, depending on whether it is used affirmatively, negatively, or interrogatively:

Par exemple…

Cela signifie que tu peux quitter l’hôpital.
That means you can leave the hospital.

Cela ne signifie pas que tu peux / puisses quitter l’hôpital. (optional subjunctive)
That doesn’t mean you can leave the hospital.

Est-ce que cela signifie que tu puisses quitter l’hôpital ?
