Discharge to a Facility

If the patient is being discharged to a rehab facility or nursing home, effective transition planning should ensure continuity of care, clarify the current state of the patient’s health and capabilities, review medications, and help you select the facility to which your loved one is to be released.

Choosing a facility can be a source of stress for families. Our social workers and discharge planners can offer much needed advice and support. There are also online sources of information (reference our Resource List Page.)
