Join Us for a Discussion on Hospital Discharge
Join Jen Graziano on Wednesday 11/7/18 at 9:30 on 1490 WGCH or on Facebook when Jen sits down with Linda Ziac of The Caregiver's Resource Center.
Jen and Linda will be discussing the importance of a patient having a solid discharge plan in place, before they leave the hospital.
WHAT IS DISCHARGE PLANNING?
According to Medicare, discharge planning is “A process used to decide what a patient needs for a smooth move from one level of care to another.”
The goal of discharge planning is to work with the patient and their family to create a plan that will identify the best level of care and services for a person after the patient leaves the hospital, while reducing adverse events and preventable readmissions.
Keep in mind that a patient may have arrived at the hospital from home, an assisted living facility, short term rehabilitation, or a nursing home.
A discharge plan is unique and needs to be individually customized for each individual patient, with the hospital providing the patient with a written discharge plan.
Linda is an exceptional resource in managing the legal and healthcare needs of seniors as she points them and their families in the right direction. Listen to her valuable advice Wednesday morning!
