Discharge plan for Jenny There is no hope of life expectancy on this condition for Jenny and need to organize the broad outline of a discharge plan for her. Productive discharge planning could reduce the chance of readmission and adverse events of jenny and her family members. Effective discharge plan of care will focus on meet the ongoing patient centre care which is The impact by the type and location of client’s home. Role of nurse is examined health promotion by educate the carer, how to deliver
Effect of Discharge Handoff Communication Currently, at Rutland Regional Medical Center (RRMC) there is no structured process for case management to provide handoff to the primary care offices when patients are discharged from the hospital. The transition of care from hospital to home is a critical time, during which the risk of adverse event occurrence is high. According to Shivji, Ramoutar, Bailey, & Hunter (2015), 19%-23% of patients experience an adverse event following discharge to home.
friends. Her in-patient and surgical care was carried out effectively and her discharge was within normal the range expected for this type of condition. I will be using the Models of Reflection (4) Boud’s (1985) Experiential Learning to identify how we had managed to achieve this process effectively, so that it can be repeated in the future. At the first point of contact with patients in hospital, we should start discharge planning with the full involvement of their carers, and that patients themselves
nursing case management is a “health care delivery process whose goals are to provide quality health care, decrease fragmentation and duplication of care, enhance the client’s quality of life, and contain costs” (ANA, 1992). Healthcare Issues The “Elder Care Case Study” provided for this task requires the nurse to assume the role of a case manager who is responsible for determining the most appropriate discharge
As a Case Manager working in a hospital environment, getting patients moved through the continuum of care is high on the list. Discharge planning (DP) is crucial for a smooth transition. It starts on the day of admission when the Case Manager sees the patient/family for the first time to do an admission assessment. Discharge planning continues throughout the patient stay. The Case Manager attends round with the Doctor, Nurse Practitioner, and Pharmacist to discuss the plan of care for the patient
This is a randomized controlled study that will determine if the implementation of COPD discharge care bundles will decrease the 30 day readmit rate for patients with respiratory complications. The prospective study participants will be adults over the age of 35 admitted to an acute care hospital with the admitting diagnosis of an acute COPD exacerbation. COPD will be defined as a patient having a forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) less than 70% predicted for age and height and a FEV1/forced
disease, diabetes, cardiac, renal disease, and obesity and might take a complex medication regimen. Therefore, these patients require a major understanding of detailed discharge education of medication regimen, side effects, and interactions to prevent them from suffering complications. Furthermore, Campbell and Selton (2010)
the patient in the given case studies, a nurse involved utilizes practical knowledge, a culture care model and transpersonal caring relationship to attain a caring environment (Smith & Parker, 2015). The Story of Mrs. Franklin-Jones Nurse Hernandez is working on a discharge plan for her patient Mrs. Franklin-Jones. She not only makes the most of case management, social work and physician involved, she goes beyond the leave from the hospital to structure post-discharge plan. By spending time with her
the phrase “discharge planning begins on admission”. However, during my tenure as a case manager on the floor, patients were frequently surprised that I wanted to discuss discharge planning so soon. I frequently had to reassure patients that we were not “trying to kick them out”. Continuing my research related to the implementation of multidisciplinary rounds (MDR), I wondered what the patient’s perception of having an entire group of people at the bedside discussing the discharge plan would be.
CINAHL, Cochrane Reviews, and PubMed databases were be used in the search. The key search words used in the literature review included diabetes, case management, readmissions, theoretical/conceptual framework, implementation and design. Hence, nine articles were reviewed taking in consideration the five-year restriction of using articles ranging from 2013 to 2018. The above articles pointed out
