- Nov 25, '11 by GrnTeaeven if your patient comes into the er with ems in a full code, there's still info you get from the crew that helps start the discharge plan. where did he live? how was he found? what was he doing? any injuries or meds or family? all part of disch planning.
op, every single time you see that question, the answer will always be the same: discharge planning begins at admission.

Pardon the aside, I had to reply to that lol. Yes discharge planning begins the minute they are admitted because that is the exact minute you are trying to get them back home and everything you assess, plan, implement, evaluate, and teach is aimed at getting them back home.
- Nov 26, '11 by wcbembeThanks everyone for all the replies. I won't be making that mistake on tests anymore.
And it's probably safe to say that all the turkeys have been admitted and fully discharged.
- Nov 26, '11 by CT PixieLPN school we were also taught..discharge starts at admission.
- Nov 26, '11 by Streamline2010We were taught in Nursing I that discharge planning begins at admission. (Or begins when they walk though the door, but that's not the NCLEX answer.) That's because hospitals stays have been deliberately shortened, and you just don't have the luxury of planning. Get 'em in, get 'em out. They go home, they go to rehab, they go to LTC, they go to some other hospital. But they don't stay long.
