With the new guidelines surfacing related to fining hospitals for readmission for same diagnosis within 30 days what clinical services are your facilities providing to build a patrnership with hosptals and to keep residents hospital admissions low. My facility is looking at providing services such as TPN etc Thanks for any input
Brandon...it's a process. I am in favor of IM lasix since it works almost as quickly with fewer chances for a castastrophe AND you don't need to have a line established. Our local hospitals are pushing this so the admissions team is too. I just hired a 3-11 supervisor who will be able to spend the time with a really sick resident.
