Case Management

Planning for your discharge actually begins upon your admission to the hospital. This gives the nurse case manager and/or social worker the opportunity to talk to you about what you need when you leave the hospital.

They will discuss your options and identify your preferences in order to customize a plan to meet those needs when you leave the hospital.The Case Management Department’s functions include:

• Serving as a liaison to your insurance company and managed care organization.

• Arranging for homecare and initiatingappropriate referrals for services you may need.

• Providing counseling and emotional support.

• Coordinating your care with the treatment team and discussing your discharge options, including arranging rehabilitation or long-term care.

• Assisting you with any community resources you may need upon discharge to ensure continuity of care.

Your level of interaction with the nurse case manager and/or social worker depends on your unique healthcare requirements and life situation.
