Transitional Care from Hospital to Home
If you or a loved one has recently experienced a major injury, illness, or health event that resulted in a hospital stay, planning your recovery is an important part of the discharge process.
Discharging from the hospital can be a hectic time. Patients and their families are bombarded with so much information that it can be difficult to take it all in. At the end of a hospital stay, you may not know what next steps to take.

Our nurses can help during this difficult transition home by providing patient and caregiver education, pain management, medication management, surgical site care and monitoring, case management, and other services to ensure the comfort of our client.
