Discharge to Assess (D2A)

Aim:For older people longer hospital stays can lead to
poorer health outcomes.
 10 days in hospital leads to equivalent of 10 years of
muscle wastage in people over 80 (Gill et al, 2004).
 Delays in system & increased
need for care packages.
 D2A is a new initiative which
supports same day discharge &
continued assessment in own
home, therefore preventing unnecessary delays.
