The Impact of Having a Living-In Aide and Hospital Admissions
July 16, 2015Our Live-in's are well trained, intuitive, caring, and experienced. We want to explain how they can make a difference to hospitals and a client's quality life. Recent trends in health care have caused hospitals to be very concerned about their readmission rates because they can be penalized if certain patients are readmitted within 30 days of being discharged. The national average for patients 65 years and older that are discharged from a hospital and readmitted within 30 days for all causes is approximately 18%. We studied the number of Live-In clients for the past 3 years that were recently discharged from a hospital or had our services and were hospitalized (189 clients) and found that the average all cause readmission rate within 30 days is much less at 13%. What is especially striking is that our clients' average age and acuity of illness is higher than what the national average is based upon-- given the fact they need Live-In Services to begin with.
