Transitional Care Management

 

 

Transitional Care Management (TCM) is a program that provides services for individuals who need help during transitions in care from an inpatient setting (including acute hospital, rehabilitation hospital, long-term acute care hospital or skilled nursing facility) to the patient’s home.

 

How does the program work?

A Transitional Care Specialist will visit you at the hospital or at home to explain the benefits of the program. Then a home nurse visit will be set up to evaluate your needs.

The Program can help you:

  • Stay safe and stable at home to avoid unnecessary visits to the hospital

  • Set goals or your health

  • Prepare for your routine visit to your primary care doctor

  • Answer questions and concerns you may have regarding your condition

  • Learn about your symptoms and how to treat them

  • Teach you about your health condition and your medications

Your care specialist will: 

  • Help with your medications

  • Show your caregiver and/or your family how to care for you

  • Assist with urinary catheter health

  • Start and monitor at home IV Therapy

  • Apply dressing changes and wound care

  • Provide nursing consultation

  • Teach you about diabetes care

Your care team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to answer any questions and visit you at home when needed.
