Hi Amanda, I’ve attached our Discharge Checklist that we use to facilitate a smooth transition from hospital to home. This has been very helpful to guide the nurse in the last week of their hospitalization. If there are education deficits, the RN notifies the BMT team during rounds. The nurse uses a MedActionPlan calendar for the families to check off meds at home. In very rare instances, the nurse helps prepare pill boxes for the patient/caregiver until the next outpatient appointment.
I hope this is helpful!

Would anyone be willing to share their processes for post-BMT discharge education and/or rooming-in process prior to discharge? We are working toward standardization of our processes, as we currently facilitate a rooming-in process primarily for patients and families that have exhibited deficits in readiness for discharge and/or comfort level with outpatient care after transplant. I would love to know what others are doing.
