Discharge Planning for Patients and Their Families
Hospitals have professional discharge planners who assist with the transfer of patients from a hospital environment to a more permanent arrangement, often the patient's home. These professionals are either Nurses or social workers, and have years of experience in the process. The process includes assessing a patient's ongoing needs and then facilitating those needs with home health agencies like Perez Health Care Group. Perez Health Care Group then works with the physician, discharge planner and parents on how to get the child home with the right care and other services that may be needed. These services include but are not limited to durable medical equipment, therapy, infusion therapy, and nursing care. Perez Health Care Group and the hospital discharge planner have ongoing communication until the family and recipient are home.
