| Posted: 20/12/2016 | Views: 1132
Alfred Health and Caulfield Hospital wanted to reduce admissions to Subacute or Acute beds and provide a home based solution to meet geriatric patient’s needs.
To address achieve their goals Alfred developed a GEM at Home Program. Characteristics of the program include:
• Admitted substitution model
• 7/wk service with 24 hr telephone support
• Goal orientated and time limited
• Daily visits from 1 or more disciplines
• Capacity to flex bed numbers (avg 11 beds)
Within the first year there were 286 admissions to the GEM at home program with 45% coming direct from the acute setting and a 9% originating from the community.
