CMS Releases Discharge Checklist

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has developed a planning checklist for persons preparing to leave a hospital or other healthcare setting.  According to CMS, the voluntary checklist is “intended to encourage patients and caregivers to actively participate in the discharge planning process.”

Assisted living and residential care professionals are all too familiar with the common situation of families and caregivers frantically searching for an appropriate care setting as their loved one is about to be discharged from a hospital.  Download your free copy of the brochure and make it available to residents, potential residents, and their family members.
