Confronting COVID-19: Finding Hospital Capacity and Improving Patient Flow
A Webinar Series Hosted by PCORI for Hospitals and Health Systems
On April 28, 2020, PCORI continued the webinar series with "Part 5 - Discharging Patients Recovering from COVID-19." Hospitals that have treated patients with COVID-19 encounter multiple challenges in discharging them, from discerning when discharge is clinically appropriate to determining where these discharged patients can or should go. At the same time, post-acute facilities and home healthcare agencies face their own challenges in accepting recovering patients and caring for them appropriately, such as the ongoing need to protect staff from infection. During this webinar, health system leaders in New York addressed these issues, including the lessons learned and promising practices that are emerging from the pandemic.
