*this is a temporary full-time position with a end date of March 29, 2019*
This program is designed to ensure effective transitions from acute to home care for two target populations: medically complex children and frail adults and seniors with complex needs and/or high risk characteristics e.g. congestive heart failure. To ensure communication and linkage with primary care; and provide timely and effective rapid response home care.
The Rapid Response Nurse provides the first in-home nursing visit within 24 hours from hospital discharge for high needs seniors and children. During this visit, the nurse will confirm the patient hospital discharge care plan, communicate the importance of primary care to avoid re-hospitalization, and perform medication reconciliation for the client.
