Leaving the Hospital
Discharge planning is a crucial aspect of patient care. Discharge nurses help to ensure that quality medical care and comprehensive instructions are provided in order to prevent re-hospitalization. The discharge nurse is the liaison between the patient and their clinical team at Skagit Regional Health.
Discharge nurses will:
- Establish patient referral: Patients may need additional healthcare services following discharge, such as physical therapy or a primary care physician.
- Initiates discharge planning procedures: Discharge nurses work with the physician and the patient’s clinical team to be certain that all plans are in order for the time of discharge. They review these plans with the patient and their family, and answer any questions that arise.
- Verify equipment and safety at home: The discharge nurses verify that the patient has any devices needed for home and verify insurance coverage. Additionally, they will review any safety concerns, such as possible fall precautions, and ensure the patient has anything additional needed to mitigate any safety concerns.
Discharge nurses will work with you and your family, along with your healthcare team, to assist with coordinating your insurance benefits and any additional needs to prepare you for discharge.
There are many options available for care after you are discharged from the hospital. From assisted living to rehabilitative services, we can help you determine what will fit within your care plan.
