Honoring our Case Management Teams

Beginning this Sunday (!) we will start our week long celebration of National Case Management Week (October 11-17), and take advantage of the opportunity to thank and honor those that work tirelessly to meet all the needs of our patients.

What Does a Case Manager Do?

Case management is a collaborative process that assesses, plans, implements, coordinates, monitors, and evaluates the options and services required to meet a patient’s health and human service needs.

Case Management Nurses work side-by-side with physicians, social workers and a wide range of medical and non-medical professionals to provide care to complex needs patients, such as those needing long term care or home care after hospitalization.

They facilitate the admission and discharge process working holistically to ensure that patients have their physical, social, and emotional needs met with one goal: to help patients regain optimum health or improved functional capability in the right setting and in a cost effective manner. This requires a comprehensive assessment of the patient’s condition, determination of available benefits and resources; and development and implementation of a case management plan with performance goals, monitoring and follow up.

 

 

I’m a Case Manager Because…

Care Managment

This in turn promotes continuity and quality patient care which has been shown to limit re-admissions, improve patient outcomes and patient satisfaction scores.” ~ Hilda Boakye

Case management is a resource that offers an opportunity to connect the appropriate providers, conversations, and follow-through that are greatly needed for delivering patient service. We can’t change culture, but we can inspire culture to change itself when we perform with purpose, integrity, empathy, and patience. ~Tam-Anh Hoang, MSN, RN

 

case managerI have been an RN at AHS for the past 13 years. What I love most about my job is summed up in my favorite author, Maya Angela’s quote: “People will forget what you said, they will forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel!“ Caring for the patient is the essence of nursing. ~ Shilpa Taitriya , RN, BSN, PHN
