Esther was invented by a team of physicians, nurses, and other providers who joined together to improve patient flow and coordination of care for elderly patients within a six-municipality region in Sweden.
In the ICU where I work we do not have patient bathrooms, so there is no way for me to assess any difficulty a patient may have, or that they can do it in my own unit- and all there are are wires and monitor leads to trip them up.
I think in the US we should do this more. Another option would be to have day pass from the hospital or in-patient rehab to evaluate needs for discharge. Home evaluations and primary care check-ins provided by physicians, residents and nurse practitioners.
How often does that tend to happen?
Plus, how many additional therapists were required to set up this system i. I worry that other patients were left sans-therapy while these visits were taking place.
Our hospital staff initially shared this concern. Lots of the improvement work involved building relationships between hospital and community staff. We measure readmission rate continuously as a balance measure of the redesigned process.
We are delighted that we haven't seen any increae in readmission rate. It is more than transferring the assessment process from hospital to home - it becomes a better, more meaningful assessment that truly identifies the support needs of our patients.
I would like to see statistics on the number of readmissions during use of this process as compared to use of the standard process to know if the individuals require future hospitalization due to complications acquired in the home environment.General Diabetes Patient Education Handouts New!
