Hospitalizations are a focus point for home health services. At admission, we review risk factors for re-hospitalization and build a treatment program around those elements. Considerations are made for age, primary diagnosis, prior/recent hospitalizations, frailty indicators, fall history, changes in cognition, polypharmacy, and current living situation/caregiver supports. Information requests for additional documentation, including lab work, helps support identifying additional risk factors.
Elite’s current rehospitalization rate is 11.7%. We are driven to keep this rate low. One of our programs is Call Nurse First which patients are introduced to on admit. This system supports critical patient needs with the availability of a nurse 24/7 through our office number (509) 758-2568.
