Repeated hospital admissions create emotional disruption and decreased quality of life for the client. Providers must understand these impacts, as well as the additional significant financial, community and family implications to repeated admissions.

In Part 2 of the series we’ll focus on understanding the process and tools for a successful patient discharge back into the home or community setting.

This will consist of:

  • An overview of pre-hospital planning
  • Post hospital tools including:
    • Communicating with hospitals
    • Communicating with medical providers
    • Communicating with the family
