Top 4 Reasons Patients Get Re-admitted The Hospital

In past years hospital readmission15661986_web within 30 days of discharge have been on the rise. The government has taken action and started to financially penalise  hospitals in an effort to ensure the safety of the patients. A study published by Dartmouth listed the top four reasons for hospitalizations.

  1. patients not understanding their diagnosis
  2. patient mismanagement of medications
  3. patients not attending follow up  visits with their doctor
  4. families not having the education for adequate supportive care

There is a solution that can help to eliminate these reasons for readmission and it is already at your disposal. Private Duty care is the key to effective post-hospital care. Private duty care offers assistance with Activities of Daily Living (bathing, feeding, dressing, transferring, etc.) and can include assistance with light housekeeping, meal preparation, transportation and more. A skilled nurse oversees the care of each home care patient and can serve as an advocate to ensure the patient is meeting their recovery  goals.

This enables the client to focus on their recovery and eliminates anxiety over handling tasks on their own, all while drastically reducing the risk of hospital readmission.
