The patient discharge process looks different in children’s hospitals compared to acute care. Often, parents or caregivers - not patient transportation staff - escort children out of the facility. Creating a seamless pediatric patient discharge process at your children’s hospital will provide children and their parents with a better experience. Aligning environmental services and patient transportation benefits pediatric patients and healthcare organizations; hospitals that properly escort children and their caregivers out of the facility, can realize room turnaround time and patient flow improvements, plus cost savings.
