Improper Discharge Planning

Lots of factors can lead a patient to be improperly discharged.  Hospitals may be unable to treat the volume of patients that come through the doors, and medical professionals may decide to discharge a patient before they are ready to be released.

Improper discharge can also result from a failure to make the correct diagnosis, leading to a premature discharge of a patient with an undiagnosed and serious medical condition. It is estimated that 12 million people are misdiagnosed annually. Misdiagnosing a patient can lead to improper treatment, delayed treatment, administration of the wrong medication, or an early discharge.

Improper discharge can lead to re-hospitalization or worsening of the condition. This type of negligence should not be tolerated.
