Patient safety tool: 2 resources on reducing readmissions from the Joint Commission

The Joint Commission has developed two new resources to help healthcare providers work on reducing avoidable readmissions and also improve the discharge process.

The first resource is the "Speak Up: Avoid a return trip to the hospital" campaign. The campaign's materials, including a video and infographic, use language that is easy for patients to understand and are designed for healthcare professionals to display and distribute to patients on-site and online.

The second resource is a "Quick Safety" newsletter for healthcare professionals. The newsletter covers suggested actions for healthcare workers to improve the discharge process and help patients avoid a readmission.
