The goal for these meetings will be to focus on needs within South Dakota and how we can work together to improve and implement best practices.
Next Meeting: May 16, 2023 | 1:00 – 2:00 pm CT
During the May 16 meeting, Jess Danko, MS, RRT, LTC-CIP, will discuss pneumonia and oral health; focused on a reduction in avoidable Emergency Department visits as a result of pneumonia. Every year millions of patients are readmitted to hospitals, and many of those stays could have been prevented. Katy Burket, RN, will share the Re-Engineered Discharge (RED) Toolkit, funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, which can help hospitals reduce readmission rates by replicating the discharge process that resulted in 30 percent fewer hospital readmissions and emergency room visits. Attend our Quarterly Meeting to learn more.
We will use the same TEAMS meeting link for each meeting.
