SPOTLIGHT CASE AND COMMENTARY: Post Discharge Follow-Up Phone Call

Posted Feb 07 2013 10:09pm
A woman hospitalized with community-acquired pneumonia was discharged home on antibiotics. Over the next few days, her symptoms worsened, but she was unable to obtain an appointment with her primary physician. The hospital called the patient that day to follow up, determined that she needed a different antibiotic, and prevented a readmission.
