Study Shows Home Health Care Shortage Increases Costs and Length of Hospital Stays for Children with Medical Complexities

Pediatric Home Service medical director Roy Maynard, MD, recently collaborated with local healthcare providers on a 12-month study of children with medical complexities preparing to discharge to home healthcare. The study found that in many cases, discharge was delayed due to a lack of available home care nursing – a shortage that increases costs and lengthens hospital stays. You can find the press release sharing the results of the study below.
