IDD Hospitalization & ER Visits Seminar

Nov 12, 2019

71 Ashland Avenue, Carlisle, PA

CPARC is pleased to present a free Family Education learning seminar on November 12th.  “Guidelines For Emergency Room Visits or Hospitalizations” will be a beneficial session for family members, as well as professionals who are new to working with individuals who have a diagnosis of IDD.

A trip to the hospital can be a stressful event for the patient, but it can also be quite intimidating for families and caregivers.  An Emergency Room is a busy, chaotic place.  Spending time there can be overwhelming, and it’s difficult to pay attention to everything that is happening.  Ultimately, being prepared ahead of time when visiting the ER is one of the most important ways to help ensure the best care for your family member, whether they are admitted to the hospital or not.

If they are admitted, you might be focused completely on their illness and medical treatment and you might not be giving much thought to what happens when your relative leaves the hospital.  Yet the way the discharge is handled is critical to the health and well-being of your loved one.  Effective discharge planning can decrease the chances that your family member is readmitted to the hospital, can help in recovery, and adequately prepare you to successfully take over their care whenever they return to their home.

This training describes best practices for individuals when an ER visit and/or hospitalization is necessary.  This seminar will cover:

  • Preparation and admission practices
  • Treatment practices
  • Discharge preparation and follow-up
  • Forms used by professionals for admittance and discharge

To register for this free seminar, email or call Sunny Burford at 717-249-2611 or Please register by November 5.
