The Nurse Case Manager, in collaboration with the clinical team and medical provider, provides discharge planning coordination and intervention. The Case Manager promotes patient wellness, improved outcomes, efficient utilization of health services, and minimizes denials of payment.
All nursing practice is based on the legal scope of practice, national and specialty nursing standards, Children's National Policies and Procedures, and in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations. The Professional Model of Care requires registered professional nurses to be responsible and accountable for their own practice. Children's National supports the development of RN relationships within the community; specifically those relationships associated with the health and well being of the community at large.
