Hospital Management

Country of origin: UK

The Hospital 2 Home resource pack, designed to support older patients returning from hospital, has been launched.

The Hospital 2 Home resource is designed to make it easier for health and social care professionals involved in hospital discharge to support older patients in returning home safely after a hospital stay and reduce the risk of readmission to hospital.

The Hospital 2 Home resource contains information, advice, case studies and checklists to help health, housing and social care professionals provide the right care for older patients.

The resource aims to improve the experience of staying in hospital and returning home for both older patients and their carers.
