Attention hospital executives, discharge planners and social workers: Are hospital readmission penalties under the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) affecting your bottom line? With our home health care services, we can address all four of the identified triggers that cause a patient to return to your facility within 30 days. These include:
- Lack of social support
- Mismanagement of medication
- Not understanding the disease process
- Missing follow-up appointments
Caregivers Can Prevent Hospital Re-Admission
Hospital readmission penalties are avoided if the patient followed the plan laid out for them by the hospital upon their discharge. Unfortunately, some patients do not have a loved one or family member to care for them, helping them to follow that plan. Here is where our licensed caregivers can help: Our home care services ensure patients take their medicine on time and provide transportation so they make their follow up appointments with their regular physician. Our care providers are also licensed and insured with the company for your peace of mind.
An important part of the healing process is companionship. Our home caregivers provide that through our in home care services. Other services include: bed-making, dressing, dusting, safety and fall protection, meal preparation, incontinence care, organizing mail and trips to the post office, oral hygiene and pet care and feeding, grocery shopping, taking out the trash, washing dishes and providing assistance on walks.
