Planning Discharge

Your hospital stay may be shorter than you had anticipated. Therefore, upon admission, you and your family need to begin considering arrangements for your discharge. You should begin discussing the following considerations with your family and Spartanburg Regional professionals:

  • Will I need someone to assist me when I return home?
  • Will a family member need to stay with me at home for a short time?
  • Will I require medical assistance at home from Home Health nurses?
  • Will I need medical equipment that I don't already have?

Our Case Management team is committed to providing seamless, comprehensive care to patients of Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System. We serve as a liaison between the patient, physician, insurance company, hospital and the community working for the benefit of the patient. In an effort to help provide physicians with the tools necessary to manage a patient¹s care, the Case Management team assures the most appropriate and highest quality services based on the needs of each individual.

Assistance from Case Managers is available to every patient at Spartanburg Regional 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Collaboration with community agencies and healthcare professionals provides a smooth transition from home to hospital and back home again. Working with Case Management professionals allows the patient to have one point of contact, rather than several, when arranging a variety of medical services after discharge.

Our Case Managers can assist you with discharge planning by arranging home health or Hospice services, rehabilitation or IV antibiotic therapies in your home, wound care in your home, or transfer for extended recovery to a facility such as St. Luke's Hospital or Spartanburg Hospital for Restorative Care.

They also provide assistance with disease management, social services for financial assistance, and arrangements for Mobile Meals and Lifeline services. We are responsible for keeping the patient and family, the appropriate healthcare provider and medical personnel informed of issues concerning progress with coordination of care and referrals.

Our Case Managers also teach or arrange rehabilitation and educational classes on strokes, diabetes, congestive heart failure, and hip and knee replacement, among others.
