What are your next steps when an individual with intellectual or development disabilities can’t be discharged to their original location? Who are you partnering with to gain information?

The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) has regional centers throughout the state that provide assistance and resources when help is needed with discharge issues — not just for hospitals but for individuals and their families.

COVID-19 has placed many challenges on health care, but you don’t have to go it alone. Learn where to go when road blocks come up and where to find resources to help care for your patients during discharge.

This webinar will help you understand:

  • What impact COVID-19 has had on facilities that need to discharge patients with intellectual  or developmental disabilities.
  • What conversations are currently occurring between hospitals and DDS regional centers.
  • How to ensure the health and safety of the patient while also minimizing the spread of the coronavirus.
  • What procedures and resources the DDS regional centers have in place.
  • What technical assistance can be provided to assist you and your patients.

Who should participate

Psychiatric administrators and managers, chief nursing officers and clinical directors, hospital leaders in acute and post-acute care settings: leaders of case management and post-acute care services, including inpatient rehabilitation, long-term acute care.
