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.
- 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.
