Common Causes of Hospital Readmission
Nearly 1 in 5 seniors will be readmitted to the hospital within the first month after discharge. To understand why transitional care IS so important, you must first recognize the common causes of hospital readmission:
- Inability to follow discharge instructions
- Missed medication doses or improper use
- Lack of mobility assistance
- Increased risk of falling
- Trouble managing an illness at home
- Difficulty following a prescribed meal plan
- Missing follow-up appointments
- Exhaustion due to disrupted sleep
Thankfully, with transitional care referrals from Kells Home Healthcare can help your loved one avoid these risk factors and have a successful recovery at home.
