CPCS Personal Care
Coming home from the hospital is not easy, especially for older adults who may face unexpected challenges. In a study of hospital discharges, 83% of patients had problems identified during the first 2 days after discharge.
Potentially avoidable hospital readmission's within 30 days of discharge are estimated to account for more than $17 billion in Medicare expenditures annually.
Studies have shown that as many as 40 percent of patients over 65 had medication errors after leaving the hospital.
To many famililes, the barrier to setting up private duty home care is the cost.
