Discharge Planning: Long Term Care (LTC) Facilities Mobile App
The Discharge Planning for Long Term Care Facilities mobile app provides information about Medicare discharge planning.
How does it work?
Discharge planning is conducted to plan for when a patient or resident leaves assisted living facilities, nursing homes, or hospitals.
Discharge instructions are easily saved in the GoCanvas Cloud and can be printed or emailed as a PDF if they need to be sent to the patient, family caregiver, or keep for your records. This app can be downloaded to an iPhone, iPad, or Android device.
Health care professionals and the patient or resident participate in discharge plans. LTC Facilities, also called Nursing Facilities (NF) or Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF), are primarily engaged in providing the resident either skilled nursing care and related services or rehabilitation services (based on his or her needs). There should also be a post-discharge follow-up to ensure the patient has settled in to his or her new living arrangements.
