Improving Post-Hospital Care in N.J.: Connecting Caregivers and Physicians

Improving Post-Hospital Care in N.J.: Connecting Caregivers and Physicians
BY ALISE RODERER
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

TRENTON – A measure sponsored by Senators Joseph F. Vitale and Linda R. Greenstein that will ensure that those taking care of patients after they leave the hospital are included in instructions on post-release care was signed into law today.

“Often a friend or relative is acting as a caregiver and helping a patient when they are released from the hospital, ensuring that they take their medication or receive the therapy needed to heal,” said Senator Vitale, D-Middlesex. “But these individuals are often receiving their instructions not directly from a doctor or health care professional, but secondhand through the patient. In order to prevent important information from slipping through the cracks, we should allow the health care professionals to include these caregivers in the discharge plan and post-release care.”
