R & R: Readmissions and Regulations

High readmissions have care providers losing rest

Hospital readmissions

25% of seniors discharged to a skilled nursing facility are being readmitted to hospital within 30 days. Having a transitional care plan that addresses this issue is critical.

Certified Nursing Assistant identifies a change in the resident's status.

Certified Nursing Assistant (CNR) alerts Registered Nurse(RN) of resident status change.

RN evaluates resident, collects information, and contacts physician.

This could take time, depending on physician availability.
If the RN didn't capture the clinical data needed to make a diagnosis, they have to go back to collect it before meeting with physician - costing valuable time.

RN meets with physicians to discuss and determine appropriate care.

By the time the physician can determine care, the resident’s condition has deteriorated.

Delayed diagnosis and treatment leads to rehospitalization.

In order to reduce the potential for hospital readmission, it all comes down to communicating the right information, at the right time, to the right people.

That's how INTERACT helps.

At the bedside, the CNR documents the residents' change in condition.

INTERACT® is used to capture any clinical data needed by RN and physician.

Physician and RN utilize the clinical data in their decision-making process to diagnose resident.

Any modification to the residents' plan of care are implemented and treatment begins at the facility.
