Maneuvering in acute care - Nurse Case Managers /PCCs

  1. My case management history was previously for public sector VA, monitoring vets admitted to outside hospitals (ie. acute, ED, SNF, etc). I recently switched jobs and am now a RN inpatient case manager in acute care hospital. Despite being comfortable due to the familiarity of being a cm, I am still needing alot of learning and adjustment to my role. Primarily, the role is quite different in the way we plan care, d/c, and utilize resources - even our patient inquiries/interactions. We use HC, epic which is quite useful in my struggle to adjust. Any experienced acute care cm have any good tips or tricks? Also, what has your experience been in adjusting to your role.
