Discharge Planning

Many times care may still be necessary after a patient is released. The transition back into a normal, but now slightly different, routine can be difficult for both the patient and their loved ones. We employ a full time discharge planner/social service RN just for this reason. She is here to assist with patient referrals from other hospitals and facilities, focuses on quality of life during patient's hospital stay, and coordinates options for a safe discharge and transition to home or alternate placement. Being your partner in continued quality healthcare for you and your family, she will decrease any worries your may have when returning home. Please do not hesitate to call Sondra Myers at 402-759-3167 ext 260 with any questions or information you may need.
