Qualicare’s hospital support team discuss hospital discharges

The following case scenario is archetypal. It was provoked by a university professor’s chronic progressive MS (Multiple Sclerosis), complicated by a serious injury to his brain as a result of a bad fall.

The Qualicare hospital support team provided advocacy and strategies at the residential rehab centre, and expedited the patient’s discharge. We then moved to quickly arrange that the home, shared by the patient and his wife, was quickly renovated to accommodate the patient’s changes. A hospital bed and other necessary furnishings and equipment were arranged through various community agencies, to create a hospital-at-home setting. The home furniture was reorganized to accommodate the patient and technical support was provided to allow him to continue work at his computer.

The Qualicare Nurse Manager worked with the CCAC to ensure our patient received all the services they were entitled to. Qualicare ensured that the patient was safe and comfortable at home.
