Transitional Care Nursing

Transitional Care Nursing focuses on the coordination and continuity of health care when you move from one health care setting to another or homeDuring care transitions, patients with complex medical needs are at an increased risk for medication errors, communication gaps from facility to facility and between primary care providers, specialists and patients/family/caregivers.  The Transitional Care Nurse assists with bridging any gaps that may occur during a care transition, ensuring better health outcomes.  The nurse can provide you with tools and support that promote knowledge and self-management of your conditions to help prevent readmission.

If you’re in need of transitional care, your Care Manager will meet with you prior to leaving the hospital to discuss care management services.  In the event your Care Manager is unable to meet with you prior to discharge, they will reach out to you with a follow-up call.
