Discharge Planning

Prior to a patient’s discharge, Cabrini of Westchester’s full time medical director and team of rehabilitative professionals make sure they’re ready for the challenges involved with returning home or to an alternate level of care. In addition to outlining personalized exercise plans and guidelines for safely performing daily routines, the care team will make sure each patient can manage stairs and other obstacles related to returning home. The patient’s therapists will arrange for durable medical equipment and other assistive devices, if needed and their nutritionist may go over dietary issues that could impact a full recovery. Nurses will provide information on medication management and wound care if applicable. All this will ensure that once they leave Cabrini of Westchester, patients will be adequately prepared to resume optimal functionality and independence.
