Hospital Discharge Planning for Elderly Patients

Transitioning from hospital to home

Oftentimes when a patient leaves the hospital their needs are different than they were before the hospitalization.  Their medications may have changed.  Their house may need modifications or the addition of medical equipment.  It’s possible that the patient may not be able to return home without some extra help, such as a certified home health aide. Perhaps the patient will need a stay in a rehabilitation facility.  Carative’s care managers are experts at working with hospital discharge planners to evaluate the needs of the patient—making sure that everything is in place allowing for a smooth transition from the hospital to home or to rehab.
