What Is Hospital Discharge Care?
Hospital discharge care is a term used when a person leaves the hospital once they are sufficiently recovered.
Before a person is discharged, their needs must be assessed so that any support or care services that they need can be arranged before the person leaves the hospital.
Any organisations that will be providing these services must be informed of the timing of the person’s discharge and when they should be visited.
Reablement discharge process also known as NHS step-down beds scheme should include:
- That they are medically fit (this can only be decided by the consultant, or someone the expert has said can make the decision on their behalf).
- An assessment of the person’s needs, living environment and support network
- A written care plan that records these needs
- The support described in your care plan has been put in place, and it’s safe for you to be discharged.
- A system for monitoring and, if necessary, adjusting the care plan to meet any change in needs
- An assessment to see if the person qualifies for NHS continuing health care
Communication and co-ordination with the onward care teams are essential if an unnecessary and often distressing move are to be avoided.
Indeed, many older people are now considering their long-term care before the decision is forced upon them by an unexpected hospital admission.
