Home Visits: Assessing Complex Patients Post-Discharge To Reduce Readmissions

Samantha Valcourt, MS, RN, CNS, clinical nurse specialist for Stanford Coordinated Care:

"Our goal is to empower our patients to be partners. We want to make sure that I can come to the home and help them. But when I'm not there, I want them to continue the work that we started and to be their own advocate. We all have the goal to reduce readmissions and long lengths of stay."
