‘Discharge to assess’ at Sheffield Frailty Unit (UK)
posted by WM Admin on 31 October 2013
In this case study, published on the Health Foundation (UK) website, changes to the emergency care pathway for frail older patients at the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust are described.
The Trust "... has set up a Frailty Unit specifically for this group of patients and is testing an innovative discharge process, where patients leave hospital as soon as they are medically fit to have their support needs assessed at home".
