Emergency Department Discharge Failure | 1.0 contact hour

$10.00

This article will discuss how the use of emergency department discharge teaching and written discharge instructions can impact the cultural, safety, legal, ethical, financial, and regulatory consequences of the hospital. When basic discharge steps are not followed, there is a risk that the patient will return to the hospital due to unresolved pain, poor medication compliance, lack of proper follow up, or exacerbation of the original complaint. As a result of discharge failures, patients may be readmitted, pursue litigation, or avoid becoming a patient in the offending hospital. Discharge failures can also be fatal.
