Pediatric hospitalization process improvement techniques

Discharge from the hospital for most pediatric patients implies that the child is clinically improving, but all the same it also creates potential risk of the transition of care. In  a study, almost 49% of patients had more than 1 medication error at discharge, which potent to increase their likelihood for readmission. In other studies, approximately 10% to 20% of patients were found to have an adverse event after discharge, with about half of these events deemed to be preventable. It is because of the potential for errors and variability in the discharge process, that recently the Children’s Hospital Association (CHA) formed the first pediatric improvement collaborative to examine whether the shared improvement strategies would affect discharge-related care failures, parent-reported readiness for discharge, and readmission.
