Hospitals are moving to home care in effort to free up hospital beds, and it’s working

April 23, 2024
The Record
Summary
Grand River Hospital and St. Mary’s General Hospital in Waterloo Region are experiencing early success with their Hospital to Home programs, designed to shift patient care from hospital beds to home settings. These programs are proving effective in accelerating patient recovery, reducing complications, and making more hospital beds available for critical cases. The initiative involves comprehensive care plans extending up to 12 weeks, administrative support from Ontario Health, and other local care organizations, ensuring a seamless transition from hospital to home care. This strategy not only relieves pressure on hospital resources but also aids in preventing longer-term health issues associated with extended hospital stays.
