In the U.S., heart failure is the most common cause of Medicare hospital readmission’s. Fort Worth Home Care states that one in every four Medicare patients with heart failure is readmitted within 30 days of discharge. Furthermore, according to the Canadian Institute for Health Information, one in 20 Canadians who has a heart attack is urgently readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of being discharged.
As part of our Hospital to Home Care Program, we have developed specific patient guides to help families manage care for their loved ones who have suffered recent heart events and more. These patient guides are part of our broader effort to address the leading causes of hospital readmission and are available from Fort Worth Home Care Assistance, 5712 Colleyville Blvd., Colleyville TX 76034, 817-349-7599. These Guides include:
