Abstract
Cardiac disease which includes chronic heart failure (CHF) is a familiar diagnosis in long term care (LTC) and facilities that are considered skilled nursing facilities (SNF) in the United States. According to the American Heart Association (2017), cardiovascular disease consists of cardiac and neuro ischemia, heart failure, and cardiac valve malfunction. With over 1.5 million residents >65 years of age living in skilled nursing facilities (SNF) in the United States, cardiovascular disease is the most common diagnosis with heart failure prevalent and ranging from 20% -37.4. Heckman et al. (2013) identifies that heart failure is significant and reaches 20% of long term care residents with a one year mortality of 40%. When compared to other diagnoses, heart failure 50% more prevalent than residents without this diagnoses. According to Jungens et al. (2015), hospital readmission rates for residents with heart failure range from 27% - 43% in SNF’s, as the incidence of heart failure increases with age. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ, 2015) has identified that rates for hospitalization of patients with cardiac disease have decreased by 30% nationally, but readmission rates have not reduced. A significant number of care services are available before and after discharge compared to twenty years ago, patients are being discharged earlier and followed up as outpatients or in the community. The high rate of readmission identifies a need for appropriate transition of care tools in acute care institutions. Resources to reduce readmission rates and support the American Heart Association’s (AHA, 2017) standard of care, have been implemented by some organizations to assist with this process. The purpose of this project is to integrate an education program and tools into the acute care institution, to reduce future hospital readmissions and improve overall quality of care.
