Many of our discharge and case managers are LVNs. In fact, it's pretty much the only position in our hospital that uses an LVN. We just don't have them around.
Agree with prior post - arranges for health care needs post discharge such as home O2, medical equipment (liaison with suppliers/insurance), follow up care, STR, LTR, SNF, interfacility transfers and the like.
Very administrative in nature, not much if any, bedside care. Requires solid communication and organizational skills.
