FREE Printable: Functional Discharge Activity

dischargeactivity

What’s the average length of stay for your facility?  The average in our hospital ranges between 10-15 days so discharges are constantly rolling around.  We place a heavy emphasis on thorough discharge planning and patient/family education to optimize the transition back home after a hospitalization.

This discussion-based activity…

  • encourages patients to plan ahead, review their progress and improve awareness of strengths/weaknesses prior to discharge home.
  • helps to wrap up educational points and brainstorm functional carryover opportunities for trained strategies
  • anticipate and plan for problematic situations
  • breaks down short term goals into achievable steps at home
