Certification: GRCTS Attendance Certificate

Description: 

Discharge planning has become more than just the movement of the patient out of the hospital. It is a “process” that starts at the point of admission and follows the patient beyond discharge. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have recently added more “teeth” to the process as it is outlined in the Conditions of Participation for Discharge Planning. Discharge planning is no longer a destination but a process that starts before the patient is admitted to the hospital and continues after they are discharged.

The proposed changes to the Conditions of Participation (CoP) for Discharge Planning will likely have profound effects on how case management departments organize their work. It will also affect the workloads of RN case managers and social workers. Patients in ambulatory settings such as out-patient surgery, outpatient procedures and emergency departments will all need to be assessed for creating a discharge plan. Family caregivers and physicians will be expected to be much more involved than they have in the past. Case management departments will be expected to follow patients via phone calls as they transition out to the community.

This program will review the current rules and regulations from the Conditions of Participation for discharge planning. We will then discuss the most recent changes from the Medicare program and how they will impact the roles of the RN case manager and the social worker. We will review strategies for safely transitioning your patients across the continuum of care. In addition, we will review how to engage other members of the interdisciplinary care team in the process of planning for the patient’s movement across the continuum including verbal and written hand-off communication. We will also discuss the positive impact that effective discharge planning processes can have on hospitals, post-acute providers and patients.

Learn how to be sure that your processes address the complexities of the new healthcare environment and that your role as a case manager or social worker is designed and staffed to meet the changes ahead.
