Discussion: Unit 5, Due Wednesday by 11:59 pm CT


  • There are many issues and complications involved in the hospital discharge planning process. The process of moving a patient from inpatient care to an outpatient environment, sometimes called the “handoff” is a complex one, and there are lots of opportunities for improvement.
  • For this week’s discussion, view the YouTube video, Discharge Planning is a Family Affair in the Required Resources. It describes the decision process for discharging a patient (Mrs. A.) from the hospital. You will hear comments from the attending physician, from the patient’s daughter, and from Mrs. A. herself.
  • In your primary post, select at least two issues where you can see potential problems in this situation.
  • For each issue you identify, where are there opportunities for performance improvement in the discharge planning system?
  • What process would you propose to evaluate these opportunities?
