One of the leading causes of hospital readmissions is the lack of adequate support following a hospital discharge. To help make a patient’s transition home smooth and successful, Nurse On Call is committed to educating seniors and their loved ones about post-hospitalization care through our Hospital to Home Care program, a comprehensive set of resources for families managing the sometimes difficult transition home after hospitalization that aims to reduce unnecessary readmissions and improve care transitions for cardiovascular patients. The goal is to reduce all-cause readmission rates among patients discharged.
Nurse On Call gives families the resources they need to prepare for a loved one’s discharge and manage the unique process of recovering at home. We hopes that patients and families who are armed with this knowledge will be able to better manage each step of the process, alleviating some of the anxiety associated with the stress of hospitalization and discharge.
The Hospital to Home Care program is founded upon the belief that patients can recover in the comfort and familiarity of the home environment following a hospitalization. Research suggests that recovering at home versus a facility can also benefit patients psychologically and emotionally. In addition, patients avoid the infection risk associated with care facilities and enjoy greater freedom outside of the institutional setting. With the help of a Nurse and caregiver, patients also benefit from dedicated one-on-one support while loved ones enjoy peace of mind knowing that trained professionals are on hand.
Also provides a comprehensive overview of the challenges and resources associated with each step in the transition from hospital to home, explaining the discharge process from an inpatient hospital stay, common issues associated with specific medical conditions, the unique needs of recently hospitalized patients and the importance of home care in patient outcomes and quality of life.
Nurse On call hopes to help make discharge from hospital to home smooth for you or a loved one by offering the knowledge required during discharge process and post-hospitalization care with ease. Our goal is to provide high-quality, in-home care to reduce hospital readmissions, increase independence in our clients and give families peace of mind.
