Patient Safety Tool: 4 Hospital Transition How-to Guides

The Institute for Healthcare Improvement offers four free hospital transition how-to guides to improve care transitions as part of its State Action on Avoidable Rehospitalizations initiative.

IHI recently updated the four how-to guides on improving transitions to reduce avoidable readmissions, which include tested interventions. Each guide addresses a transition from the hospital to a different setting:

1. Community setting.
2. Skilled nursing facility.
3. Home healthcare.
4. Clinical office practice.

Download the hospital transition how-to guides for use in your own facility by clicking on "Materials" on the left-hand side of the STAAR website and then clicking "How-to Guides and Guides for Field Testing."

Note: View our database providing more than 400 reports that link to free downloadable and adaptable tools for use in surgery centers, hospitals and other organizations.
