Reducing & Preventing Readmissions to the Hospital

Preventing readmission does not end when a person leaves the hospital; in fact, that is often when it begins! When a newly discharged client is added to your home health roster, the entire team accepts responsibility to help that client follow discharge instructions, take medications properly, and make and keep follow-up appointments. This course helps caregivers understand their role in this process.

  • Identify clients at increased risk for readmission within 30 days of discharge.
  • List at least three ways that you can help clients in both managing their medications and keeping appointments after a hospital discharge.
  • Discuss the difference between symptoms that merit a call to the doctor versus those that require a trip to the ER.
  • Develop a plan to improve change-of-shift reports for CNAs that reduces or prevents readmissions.
  • Collaborate with the entire healthcare team to improve outcomes for clients at risk for readmission.
