Reducing Hospital Readmissions Through Quality In Home Care

Falls, hospitalizations, and readmissions are difficult challenges as we are not solely responsible for those metrics. That said, we are proud of the fact that client falls with a Home Instead caregiver present are very rare, with an incidence rate of 0.28%.

Additionally, only 5% of the client population under our care has had to be hospitalized during the last four years. In our line of work, readmission reduction is the name of the game in post-acute care. Because we struggle with not always being in complete control of the situation, non-compliance issues often drive these numbers. For example, a client may not follow the prescribed plan of care, leading to a medical crisis, hospital visit, and potentially readmission.

Client Case Study

Client Case Study

A client came to us after falling and breaking her same hip a second time – an unfortunate situation documented as readmission. Our experienced caregivers were with her for four months as she recovered, during which time she had no falls and quickly regained her mobility and strength.

After an incident-free recovery, she and her family decided to terminate care with us because the client was feeling confident in her ability to live independently without help. Two weeks after they terminated care, she fell and re-broke the same hip for the third time – which our documentation shows as a fall and hospital readmission. Luckily, the client was eventually well enough to be discharged back home and placed once again under our care.

Why Place Your Trust in Our Post-Acute Care Services?

Even with non-compliance issues and other factors outside our control, the hospital readmission rates for Home Instead clients are extremely low, with an average 90-day readmission rate of only 3.25% over the last four years.
