Hot Wash and Patient Care
I am the program director for an inpatient rehabilitation unit. When I listened to the Hot Wast podcast, I immediately wondered how I could apply this concept to patient care. If you think of an individual patient as a "project", I think you could do a hot wash after the patient discharges. In particular, I am thinking about complicated patients with longer than average length of stay and heavy multi-disciplinary involvement. I have some ideas about how this might work in my facility, but I wondered if there were any other health care managers out there who had thought along these lines. I would really like to open a dialog with some other people on this topic and see if we can do some idea sharing.
