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.
