WVRR is directly connected to senior living professionals that provide expert advice for successful discharge. We work in tandem with social workers to ensure proper post-acute care (PAC).

1. Patient Choice & Safety Comes First

Every successful discharge requires a collective effort. WVRR assist family members to ensure adherence to all discharge orders. The leading cause of preventable readmissions is disregarding medical instructions. WVRR starts by fostering a commitment (from all involved parties) to following the discharge plan. WVRR fully internalizes our clients needs and will explain the why behind discharge orders, multiple times if necessary. 

Patient dignity is founded on quality care and viable choices. WVRR expands and reinforces patient choice by continually verifying which PAC facilities are clinically and operationally equipped to accept patients with elevated care needs. We do the leg work and validation so case managers can present discharge plans to be immediately signed off on.
