Discharge with Dignity™

The Discharge Planners New Role: Adopt a "Home-first" Mentality
The Financial Impact of Post Acute Referral Patterns for hospitals, ACO’s & Bundles
Click on the Image Below to Enlarge

The Discharge with Dignity guide was developed by Dr. Josh Luke to be used as a tool for hospital case managers, discharge planners and social workers in planning for post acute care for patients. The guide's goals are two-fold: 1) To encourage doctors and hospitals to consider sending a patient home with resources, to age, heal and recover at home as opposed to in an institution if home is a possibility, and 2) The guide utilizes multiple colors to illustrate and represent the financial penalties for hospitals and doctors if patients are consistently discharged from the hospital to post acute institutions such as acute rehab, long term acute care or skilled nursing. Hospitals around the country have implemented this guide for daily use as it presents a dramatic shift from the mindset of discharge planners during the fee for service era.

Cardiothoracic Post-Operative Compression Vest

Sternal dehiscence and instability are a significant cause of persistent pain and limited quality of life for patients who have undergone open heart surgery. Considerable wound pain with breathing, palpable sternal instability and local inflammation can persist for months. This patented, warp-knit fabric provides medical grade compression to help the body heal faster. It is engineered with Three Dimensional Stretch™ to ensure optimal compression and reduce pain. It ​differentiates itself from other vests as it is treated with Silvadur anti-microbial protection to help lower the risk of infections and improve recovery times.

Medical grade compression improves sternal stabilization, reducing pain and localized edema. The vest includes long lasting antimicrobial protection to help lower the risk of infection and resultant re-admissions or other complications. Cardiothoracic Post-Operative Compression Vests after any heart surgery have resulted in improved patient compliance with prescribed treatment protocol, reduced length of hospital stay and evidence-based re-admission reduction for cardiac patients.

  • Only 25% of more than 3,000 U.S. hospitals avoided readmission penalties in FY 2016.
  • Studies in 2015 found that tying physician pay to quality has not had the desired impact.
  • Hospitals have had a stronger reaction to Medicare Spending Per Beneficiary penalties than the readmission penalty.
  • The CMS SNF Readmission Penalty program began October 1, 2016.
  • The SNF Readmission penalty measures how many patients from each SNF are readmitted to acute hospitals within 30 days of hospital discharge.
  • A SNF can be penalized under the The SNF Readmission penalty even after a patient is discharged home from the SNF if the patient is readmitted within the 30 days after discharge from the acute hospital.
