Description:
The local Winter Capacity Initiative (WCI) Group was established to integrate community and acute services to improve discharge. The provision of interim home care packages (iHCP) commenced in conjunction with the rollout of the national HSE Home Care Package (HCP) Guidelines and as part of the local WCI plan to aid discharge. This project was established to deal with operational issues encountered relating to discharges supported by iHCP. Its aim was to implement a clear protocol for older persons to be discharged home safely from four acute sites using up to 10 hours interim home support.
