Home Assessment and Discharge

Before patients are discharged from the Transitional Care Unit to return home, our rehabilitation team conducts in-home assessments – to determine equipment, home modifications and support patients may need. Our nurse navigator assists patients to ensure a smooth transition to home, following them for 30 days post-discharge to prevent rehospitalization.
