Understanding the Hospital Discharge Process

Returning home after a hospital stay can be complex for older adults and their families. Paying close attention to discharge instructions, changes in medications, special equipment needs, and more, may mean the difference between staying at home and going back to the hospital.

Join us to learn about discharge planning and services that may be provided in the home, such as home health, in-home rehab, or wound care. Hear about the importance of scheduling follow-up visits with medical professionals, completing medication reconciliation, and picking up ordered prescriptions quickly. Find out how to ensure loved ones understand medication and routine changes, as well as how to assess and purchase needed equipment or services, and how to assess and implement changes to the home environment.

Program Presenter: Mary Wilkie, Head Care Coordinator, Discharge Planner, Northside Cherokee Hospital
