Intra Hospital Transfers Nancy Waggoner, RN Hillcrest Medical Center Intra Hospital Transfers Intra Hospital Transfers at Hillcrest Medical Center are happening on a daily basis at our facility to accommodate our patient needs and requests; but more frequently to accommodate our hospital needs related to hospital admissions. As our facility faces multiple issues with financial deficits, increased census issues, staffing issues, and patient safety issues it is evident that we need to look at several factors why we are transferring a patient from one room to another, the time and cost involved in the transfer, risks of transfer to patient safety, and quality of care and patient satisfaction. According to an article by Ann L. Hendrich she states “intra hospital transfers can have a profound detrimental and even life threatening effect on patients and health systems. Patients are at increased risk during transfers due to decreased accuracy of monitoring during the transfer process. Intra hospital transfers also cause confusion and significant stress on patients and families.”(Hendrich, 2005, p. 157) Patient transfers are occurring frequently due to the patient need for higher level of care because of condition change or moved from higher level of care to a step down unit.

Some ways health care changes have affected my role is the focus on patient and family centered care.

The hospice offers short term in-patient stays for symptom control, rehabilitation and respite care for patients who are eighteen years of age or over with cancer or other life-limiting illnesses.
