NICHE 'Need to Know' Resource: Discharge
The "Need to Know" series is an effort to meet the important information needs of older adult patients and their families. These informational sheets, written in simple, easy-to-understand terms, help prepare people for the realities of hospitalization.
This Need to Know provides older adult patients and their families/caregivers with information they can use to help deal with the transition from hospital to home or other care facility.
NICHE (Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders) is the leading nurse driven program designed to help hospitals improve the care of older adults.
