PICOT QUESTIONS ARE UPLOADED BELOW AS WELL
The type of research which was carried out by Nguyen et al. (2021) is quantitative. The researchers used the retrospective cohort design based on adult patient data discharged from fifteen hospitals in Southern California. The study’s research question is; what are the effects of clinic and telephone follow-ups that had been carried out fully within seven days on readmission, and do the effects vary with the age and service line? The sample of the study consisted of adult patients. The study’s sample size consisted of 212,513 grown-up patients who had been discharged from fifteen different hospitals located in Southern California hospitals (Nguyen et al., 2021). The sample attributes are that it was the first hospitalization, they were discharged from the hospital alive, and the patients remained enrolled in the health plan for a minimum of thirty days after being released by the hospitals. The participants also had to be discharged from the hospitals between January 2017 to December 2019. The setting of the study was in Southern California in the Kaiser Permanente healthcare facilities. The study found that completing clinic or telephone follow-up visits within seven days of hospital discharge reduced hospital readmission rates.
The study carried out by Benjenk & Chen (2018) is qualitative and uses a descriptive research design. Can interventions designed to treat mental health symptoms be used to reduce the readmission risks on patients who have been hospitalized for physical health conditions? The sample used for the study is peer-reviewed articles obtained from PubMed and Google Scholar. The sample size consisted of eighty-one full-text peer-reviewed articles. The attributes of the articles are that they had to be published between January 2010 and June 2018, had to be peer-reviewed, and were limited to English-language articles (by Benjenk & Chen, 2018). The studies used for the study also involved mental health-related intervention and had to measure the total rate of readmissions as an outcome. The authors of the study did not discuss the setting of the study. The study found out that the use of mental health strategies can help reduce hospital readmission rates. The strategies identified include routine monitoring of symptoms and monitoring of medication adherence.

Hospital Readmission Rates
Hospital readmission is characterized as an emergency clinic affirmation that happens
inside a predefined time after release from the principal confirmation. The re-hospitalization rate
was considered a sign of the eminence of the hospital’s clinic and was displayed to reflect a
measure of patient attention. Re-hospitalization results in longer hospital stays and more
emergency clinic resource use. An increase in readmission rates and increasing the use of
innovation, leads to increased incomes, even if the consideration may mean that it may not be
effective. Re-hospitalization is an exorbitant cost for the clinic. Rather than spending money on
complex systems and high-severity patients, clinics can level assets by providing more start-up
confirmations for low-severity patients, or with appropriate release programs. You can invest in
reducing readmissions. Various procedures are used to solve the readmission rate problem, as
outlined in the PICOT question. It is used to determine best practices for working on results
within a month.
Description and background information
Once patients are released from the medical clinic, they imagine going through their days
recovering a lot at home until they improve (Upadhyay et al., 2019). Lamentably, for some
elderly patients, that does not occur. Medical clinic readmission for elderly patients is not just
distressing; however, it can likewise negatively affect a patient’s general well-being. The
additional time a patient is in a clinic, the more probable they are to create genuine, conceivably
hazardous diseases, for example, medical clinic procured pneumonia. Finding a way ways to
decrease clinic readmissions in the elderly is fundamental. In addition to the fact that it protects
we are interested in the nursing procedures (interventions)
the clinic from potential Medicare fines, however, it helps keep probably the weakest individuals
from the community (the elderly) strong and healthy.
Various strategies are used to address the issue of readmission rates. Framing partnership
with nearby medical clinics and different suppliers, helps make the recuperation interaction
simpler for elderly patients. At the point when they are released from the clinic, they’re ready to
rapidly and easily find doctors, home medical care groups, and emergency clinics that not
exclusively will give quality therapy however that approach all past clinical records and
important data. Elderly patients can without much of a stretch become overpowered when given
a lengthy discharge document (Bjorvatn, 2013). HCPs should attempt to keep release guidelines
simple to peruse and clear. Neglecting to plan follow-up arrangements or introductory meetings
with experts can prompt emergency clinic readmissions in the elderly. Before releasing a patient
from the emergency clinic, work with them to get them booked for a follow-up arrangement or
an underlying meeting with a subject matter expert. Patients, particularly the elderly, will be
bound to follow through and get the medical services they need to try not to be readmitted to the
emergency clinic if the arrangements are now made for them. Patients will in any case require
itemized follow-up that incorporates guidelines for post-medical clinic care, layouts of any vital
tests that should be performed and subtleties on when to plan any meetings with subject matter
experts or an essential consideration doctor. This is through effective communication.
Significance of the topic to nursing practice
In the hospital setting, the mortality rate of readmission patients is higher than that of
non-rehospitalized patients. Various experts argue that readmission to the hospital leads to longer
hospital stays and more emergency clinic resources. Candidate about the nature of care
nurse navigators for high risk illnesses for readmission: CHF, COPD, Asthma, MI, Diabetes and so on
type of nurse patient discharge education
keeps patient happy and satisfied with their care
so nurse case management or nurse liason might be crucial procedures of relevancy to nurses i care of elderly
whose responsibility is this?
nurse discharge planning
information obtained through assessment and decomposition is a new issue for clinics and
welfare management associations. The Hospital Readmission Reduction Program (HRRP) was
planned as a Medicare-based procurement program that unilaterally reduces clinic premiums
with high readmission rates (McIlvennan et al., 2015). The candidate strengthens responsibility
and gives patients an understanding of a wide range of medical services in the clinic. Accepting
responsibility can put pressure on hospital leaders to lessen re-hospitalization rates, but
decreasing readmissions by releasing patient’s early means that these patients must return to the
clinic. If you do, you may not be able to save money or make a profit. Ordinarily, the subject will
be fundamental in nursing practice, as it will support reducing readmission rates, which is a
perspective, utilized in the positioning of Health Care Facilities. Readmission is an unfavorable
proportion of outcome measurement.
I. In elderly patients (P), how does virtual follow up (I) compared to _no follow up (C)
influence the rate of readmissions (O) over one month after discharge (T)?
II. In elderly outpatients (p) how does physical follow up (i) compare to virtual follow up(c )
influence readmission rates( o) over one month after discharge (t)
III. In elderly patients (p) how does effective communication systems with patients (I)
compare to physical follow up (c ) influence readmission rates (o) over one month after
this would be unethical
reverse the I and C and this would be your best one! The comparison or standard intervention is the follow up physical visit typically esp if recent hospitalization
another main reason for readmission can be traced to medication mismanagement; how can discharge medication protocols (med reconciliation, med planners with time alarms, referral to med check services and simplified teaching and administration programs, etc help?
too vague (do you mean call reminders, nurse call systems?)
again, how does this concern or related to patient nursing practice?
how is this significant to nurse practice of patients?
what has nursing revolutionized since the readmission problem; their focus is not so much on profits but on assisting the elderly patient with ongoing care management, referral and follow up, all the things you mentioned..a great question would be: in elderly hospitalizied patients with CHF, how does a nurse navigator system as compared to none influence readmission rates over 30 days
