How Tunstall Emergency Response Can Help the Discharge Manager Transition Patients Home for Independent Living.

As a discharge manager, you know how challenging it can be to plan the discharge of patients who need ongoing care and support at home.

You want to ensure that they can live independently and safely, without compromising their quality of life or increasing the risk of hospital readmissions. You can achieve this goal with the help of Tunstall Emergency Response.

Problems Patients Face When They Transition Without the Correct Support.

Many patients experience difficulties in performing activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, cooking, and shopping, after being discharged from the hospital.

They may also face barriers to accessing the appropriate services and supports they need in the community, such as home care, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, social work, and nursing.

These challenges can lead to poor outcomes, such as loss of function, reduced participation, increased dependency, isolation, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and accidental falls.

If you are a discharge manager, you probably know these facts very well. You may also feel frustrated and overwhelmed by the pressure to discharge patients as soon as possible while ensuring their safety and satisfaction.

You may wonder how you can make the best decisions for each patient, taking into account their individual needs, preferences, and circumstances. You may wish you had more time, resources, and support to plan and implement a smooth and effective discharge process.

But what if we told you that there is a way to make your job easier and your patients happier?

What if we told you that there is a solution that can help you transition patients home for independent living while reducing the risk of falls, hospital readmissions, and emergency department visits?

What if we told you that this solution is already available and proven to work?

That solution is Tunstall Emergency Response, a leading provider of In-home Support Product Solutions.

Tunstall Emergency Response offers a range of services and devices that can help you and your patients achieve a successful discharge and a safe and comfortable home environment. Here are some of the benefits of using Tunstall Emergency Response:

Remote Monitoring 24/7:

Tunstall Emergency Response has a state-of-the-art 24 hour monitoring centre, staffed by trained and experienced operators, who can respond to any emergency or request from the patients or their caregivers. The operators can communicate with the patients through the devices, assess the situation, provide reassurance and advice, and alert the appropriate services or contacts if needed. This way, the patients can feel secure and supported at all times, knowing that help is just a button away.

Helping Discharge Managers Transition Patients Home, Fall Prevention

Fall detection:

Tunstall Emergency Response offers a variety of devices that can detect falls and automatically alert the monitoring centre or the designated contacts.

These devices include pendants, wristbands, watches, sensors, and mats, that can be worn or placed in strategic locations around the home. The devices can also be activated manually by the patients or their caregivers, in case of any emergency or need.

This way, the patients can prevent or minimise the consequences of falls, such as injuries, complications, infections, and loss of confidence.

Smart Home Technology: WISE Home Kit

The WISE home kit comprises everything required in order to set up a complete, fully functional trial site for demonstration and evaluation purposes including equipment and installation.

Environmental Control Solutions

ECS enables people with limited dexterity and impaired mobility to easily perform a wide range of everyday activities including operating the TV or DVD, opening, and closing windows, curtains, and doors, operating domestic appliances, and controlling lights within the home.

They can be integrated with telecare solutions in order to provide individuals with a greater level of independence and quality of life, facilitating re-ablement together with the management of risk, thereby reducing reliance on carers to perform many of the fundamental activities of daily living.

ECS consist of a central controller and a range of radio-operated peripherals including switches (for clients who cannot use the keys on the controller), mounting solutions and fixtures like door/window operators, curtain/blind tracks, and intercom equipment to meet the full requirements of people who need an ECS. The following controllers are available depending on the client’s needs.

Product assistance for epilepsy, dementia, and sensory impairment:

Tunstall Emergency Response can also assist patients who have specific needs, such as epilepsy, dementia, or sensory impairment.

Tunstall Emergency Response provides devices that can detect seizures, alert when wandering, confusion or if a fall occurs, and alert the monitoring centre or the caregivers. When the monitoring centre is alerted the team can offer, guidance, or reassurance, depending on the situation.

This way, the patients can maintain their dignity, autonomy, and well-being, while reducing the burden and anxiety of their caregivers.

As you can see, Tunstall Emergency Response can offer you and your patients a comprehensive and customised solution for a smooth and successful transition from hospital to home.
