Abstract

Comprehensive discharge instructions can reduce ED revisit

Discharge from the hospital is a vulnerable time for patients. 1 out of 5 patients experiences an adverse event during this transition period, with one 3rd of these adverse events probably avoidable. Comprehensive discharge teachings can improve patient understanding and it is essential to make sure a smooth transition from hospital to home, as the accountability for patient care transferences from health care staffs to the patients and their caregivers. (Bailey, 2012).
