CLG Briefings: Heath Groves of Sundown Solutions in conversation with Joe Tibbetts


© CLGdotTV 2018 Heath Groves of Sundown Solutions talking to Joe Tibbetts

A solution to bed blocking would save money, time and heartbreak. Sundown Solutions may have a large part of the answer.

When a patient in healthcare is ready to leave the hospital and move into social care finding a bed for them, in the right place and at the time their care needs are changing, is difficult to say the least. In the end health care staff, with skills that could be better applied elsewhere, end up sitting on the phone calling round the local care homes. It's costly. It's a waste of scarce resources. It's frustrating for staff and depressing for patients. And worst of all the moment the staff member puts the phone down the information they have been given is out of date. It seems however that a solution to the log-jam may be at hand.
