Reducing readmissions with a scheduled presence in the post-acute care setting

Reducing readmissions with a scheduled presence in the post-acute care setting

When you have a physician or hospitalist in a facility, acute changes in condition are addressed. Moreover, acute changes in condition (once they're addressed) can lead to decreased re-hospitalizations and we've shown this quite convincingly. Scheduled presence improves nursing competency as oftentimes impromptu in-services contribute to the nursing staff's understanding of physician expectations.
