Product Description

Avoid the pitfalls that cost SNFs billions each year in preventable rehospitalizations

An informed and proactive nursing home staff is a vital weapon in the struggle to keep residents from being readmitted to the hospital. Ending Hospital Readmissions: A Blueprint for SNFs delivers several practical strategies your facility can employ to combat this problem, such as enhanced resident assessment and documentation policies, provider partnerships that improve transitions of care, staff education tools, and methods to achieve resident and staff involvement. This book will show you the true financial consequences of unchecked resident readmission and provide you with the tools to do something about it!

The information in this book will help you develop a plan to:

- Ensure smooth care transitions through resident education and effective communication with staff and other care providers
- Reduce costs associated with rehospitalizations
- Prevent the incidence of hospital readmissions resulting from avoidable complications, medication problems, and adverse events
- Encourage the resident and family to participate in the transition to ensure satisfaction with quality of care
- Maintain or improve the resident's quality of life
