Discharge Planning - Consumers of all ages should understand what this is before need arises
When I hear the phrase 'discharge planning' I think of professional discharge planners. That is fine but I think it is time for consumers of all ages to understand what 'discharge planning' is all about. Understanding 'discharge planning' is part of getting well after an illness. I did some exploring online and found a section on the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services website that has resources for professionals involved in discharge planning. Follow the link and learn more at Medicare Learning Network® (MLN). Also of interest is a pdf Discharge Planning Booklet - interesting details.
