home visits

Hospital at home set up where patients receive support at home (nil or low cost to patient) at an appropriate time during admission. e.g. I am a home visiting mobile dietitian & could review, supervise & support patient nutrition care plan but could apply to any discipline

Why the contribution is important

Malnutrition/poor nutrition is often a factor during hospitalisation & patients may eat better in the home environment. 

Home environment is more practical for a range of therapists

    Great idea. Low-cost visits would be critical for many in our community to be able to utilize this. Also need to ensure that the hospital, GP and the therapists are all working together with the patient and other community support services.
