Every day hundreds of patients are admitted into Iowa hospitals, where they are treated, rehabilitated and healed. And every day many of these patients are sent home to continue their recovery. But they don’t leave the hospital unprepared and they aren’t left to fend for themselves.
Preparing patients for the transition to home is both important and complex. To avoid getting sick and being readmitted to the hospitals, patients are carefully counseled before they are discharged. Additionally, their care is carefully coordinated between the hospital and others involved in their recovery, such as home health workers, pharmacists and public health nurses.
This video examines how two Iowa hospitals support coordinated care in their communities.
