How to Prevent Hospital Readmissions


Nurses and nursing case managers are essential to preventing readmissions.

The statistics regarding hospital readmission are staggering; “nearly 20 percent of all patients that leave a hospital return to take another go-round through the hospital intake process within 30 days of their initial discharge” (Herzog, 2013). This white paper addresses the ways in which nursing staff can reduce the number of patient readmissions. Hospital readmissions are frustrating for both patients and providers, creating stress regardless of the reason for readmission.
