Team-Tested Practices

Team Helps Patients Heal at Home

Nurses, physicians, physical therapists and pharmacists work together to reduce the amount of time patients getting hip and knee replacements spend in the hospital after surgery.

What Got Results

  • Coming together from various departments (orthopedics, physical therapy, pharmacy) to teach a class for patients about what to expect before, during and after surgery
  • Rounding on patients in interdisciplinary teams
  • Making discharge calls and leveraging home health nurses as the bridge between hospital and home
