The Impact of Post Discharge One-Time Home Visit: Bridging the Gap Between Hospital and Home.


Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

A single post-hospital discharge home visit by a geriatric nurse practitioner or geriatric fellow can bridge the gap and ease the transition for elderly frail patients returning home after hospital admission. We believe this intervention will reduce medication errors, ensure follow-up discharge plans, decrease re-hospitalization rates, and decrease morbidity and mortality.
