This case management webinar will explore how an initial assessment and clinical review can better ensure that patient is placed in the correct setting right from the get-go which is a very unique role played by ED and admitting office, transfer center case managers and social workers. The 2 midnight rule and the part that case management plays in managing it will also be reviewed. It will give idea about reducing the use of Condition Code 44 or self-denials when patients get admitted to the incorrect level.

Why Should You Attend:

Access point case managers reside in emergency departments, admitting offices and transfer centers. Among their roles is to ensure that patients are placed in the right level of care upon admission. With the advent of the 2 midnight rule, this role has never been more important. In addition, they are vital in assisting in readmission reduction, discharge planning and patient flow.

In this webinar we will explore the unique roles of the ED and admitting office and transfer center case managers and social workers and how an initial assessment and clinical review can better ensure that patient are placed in the correct setting right from the get-go. We will review the 2 midnight rule and the part that case management plays in managing it. This can better ensure a reduction in use of Condition Code 44 or self-denials when patients get admitted to the incorrect level. ED staff also assists in reducing unnecessary admission and readmissions.
