Leadership / Delegation Question #15
A client is receiving discharge instructions following abdominal hysterectomy. The nurse discovers the client has a disabled parent living in the same home. The nurse will discuss with the health care provider, the need for a referral to which interdisciplinary team member?
- Home health
- Social services
- Volunteer respite services
The Social worker will be able to coordinate care and other community resources such as respite or home health and would be the best selection for the client. While the other selections are possible, social services will be able to hone in on those listed as a point of contact and referral source.
