Case Management & Discharge Planning
Curry Health Network provides Case Management and Discharge Planning for our inpatient population at Curry General Hospital.
Case Management consists of a Registered Nurse (RNCM) who coordinates hospital inpatient discharges. Our RNCM also works closely with providers; nurses; physical, occupational and speech therapies; and other healthcare professionals to assist patients in the hospital. They are part of the care team and participate in daily rounds with the medical staff.
They are often called upon to resolve clinical and psychosocial concerns and to identify and remove barriers to enable a patient's timely discharge from the hospital. The RNCM is also available to discuss and educate patients and families on placement options into various types of care facilities, coordinate care with home health, hospice, and state agencies, assist and educate in advanced care planning and provide general resource assistance to patients and their families.
Curry Health Network's Inpatient Case Manager can be reached at 541.247.3011 or via the House Supervisor at 541.247.3024.
