Transition Safely from Hospital to Home
For patients, the transition from hospital stay to home is a critical time
in their healing cycle – especially for those who are recovering
from complex and chronic conditions. To help smooth this process and bridge
the gap, Sherman Oaks Hospital offers a Multi-Specialty Clinic on its
medical campus. Now, your hospital provider can extend the continuity
of care between your hospital stay and your follow-up Primary Care appointment
by arranging a clinic visit within the first seven days of discharge to
continue to assess your ongoing medical needs throughout your recuperation.
Did you know? Almost 60% of hospitalized Medicare patients did not have contact with
a physician within two weeks following discharge. For patients with ongoing
medical needs, misconnections are major contributors to hospital readmissions.1
We are here to address your concerns and help you get back on your feet!
