The Impact of a Nurse Practitioner-led Home Visit Program on Hospital Readmissions

A nurse practitioner-led home visit program was implemented as a strategy to reduce readmissions at a small community hospital. This quantitative retrospective case-controlled study examined the impact of a nurse practitioner-led home visit program on 200 post-acute patients by comparing readmission rates in patients who received home visits from the nurse practitioner to patients who received the usual post-discharge care.
