A new nursing home safety research tool launched for use during the pandemic. It helps case managers & families determine options at hospital discharge for continued care based on infection rates.
Elizabeth, United States - December 2, 2020 /PressCable/ —
Patient Care Guide has launched an updated research tool designed to help case managers that are exploring options to transition a patient into a nursing home. It’s designed to help patients, during a pandemic, make an informed choice by offering insight into each facilities COVID-19 report, clinical specialties and in-network insurances.

The newly launched service is designed to streamline the nursing home selection process. Currently, research into the level of infection in skilled nursing facilities, is very time consuming. Patient Care Guide aims to dramatically improve and support the process for case managers working with families.
The website is designed to be a central hub of useful information about care providers and facilities in their chosen area across the US. This resource covers long-term care hospitals, inpatient rehabilitation facilities, dialysis facilities, home health services, nursing homes and hospice care.
Now they have expanded their nursing home solutions with the launch of their clinic safety data solution. This is important, because due to the increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations there is growing concern of clinical staffing and bed availability in hospitals.
The newly updated online tool allows people to review nursing homes and track their weekly infection totals. This leads to a heightened sense of transparency, which is beneficial for patients when it comes to choosing their ideal home for continued care.
Patients who are preparing to discharge from the hospital to a nursing home are often delayed, due to the timeliness it takes for a case manager to gather virus information.
Now, when case managers visit Patient Care Guide.com, they can easily search for nursing homes using the patients’ zip code anywhere in the US.
The weekly report from the nursing home features the weekly and ongoing totals of confirmed and suspected cases. Nursing homes report weekly to the CDC’s National Healthcare Society Network System. The technology used in the new design is able to compile this data and give it to the user as it is reported.
Additionally, nursing homes can log in to update their profile, in real time, whether or not they are currently accepting patients who are actively positive for the virus.
