Discharge And Home Healthcare Guidelines

MEDICATIONS. Be sure the caregiver understands all medications, including the dosage, route, action, and adverse effects.

SAFETY. Explain the need to supervise outdoor activity, cooking, and bathing. Lock doors and windows, and lock up medications and toxic chemicals. Make sure the patient wears identification to provide a safe return if she or he becomes lost. Commercially made products are available that trigger an alarm if the patient wanders out of safe territory.
