Patient discharge preparation is a crucial element in completing a successful transition of care. By using their relationship with the patient to encourage adherence to the plan, home health aides play a valuable role in getting the patient ready for discharge. This in-service outlines the role aides play in the discharge process and details how they can promote patient self-management skills, as well as obedience to diet, medication, and exercise regimens.
After completion of this program, the home health aide will be able to:
- Describe his or her role in preparing the patient for discharge
- Identify patient self-management skills
- Describe specific activities of daily living (ADL) the patient/caregiver must master safely prior to discharge
- Identify and discuss expected patient outcomes prior to discharge
