AARP Law Supports Family Caregiver Engagement in Discharge

AARP Law Supports Family Caregiver Engagement in Discharge

The Ohio state legislature has unanimously passed a law that will require hospitals to train and engage family caregivers in at-home patient care, easing the transition during hospital discharge.

AARP Ohio proposed the AARP Caregiver Advise, Record, Enable (CARE) Act, which requires the following of hospitals:

Designate a family caregiver in the patient’s medical record.
Inform the family caregiver when the patient is to be discharged.
Offer the family caregiver instruction and demonstrations of medical tasks they will be expected to provide for their loved ones at home, such as administering multiple medications, dressing wounds and operating medical equipment.
These requirements are not only aimed at improving patient care following hospital discharge, but also at reducing healthcare costs and hospital readmissions through quality at-home family care.
