Video: When You Can't Go Home After Hospital


In this video, Karen Boyce from the Southeastern HCQU provides information for families and caregivers oncoming home after a hospitalization for COVID-19.

It includes tips for discharge planning, communication, what happens if you can’t go home and preparation for the care of the recovering person at home.

Key Takeaways:

    • Not everyone will be able to go home after discharge from hospital.
    • Talk to the hospital social worker about which facility the individual you serve will be transferred to.
    • Speak to the individual’s provider about the availability of isolating in alternative setting-an adapted day program or work shop for example.
