Everett Transitional Care Services (ETCS) seeks to improve the quality of life for patients being discharged from the hospital and help transition to the next level of care.
Everyone deserves a safe and welcoming environment for recovery. ETCS assists both in long-term placement and connecting to important resources.
Whether the discharge is to a home, a rehabilitation facility or a nursing home, careful planning is critical to the health and well-being of your loved one.
Effective discharge planning can decrease the chances of being readmitted to the hospital and facilitate a smooth transition. ETCS helps guide the way.
If being discharged to a rehab facility or nursing home, effective transition planning ensures continuity of care, clarifies the current state of health and capabilities, reviews medications and helps select the facility to be released.
