Purpose: to identify predictors and outcomes of Perceived Readiness
for Hospital Discharge. Perceived readiness for discharge as a concept has
rarely been included as a variable in studies of hospital discharge and
the transition to care at home.
Theoretical framework: Meleis' Transitions theory.
Subjects: Postpartum mothers; Adult medical-surgical patients; and Parents
of hospitalized children. 120 subjects in each sample group.
Methods: A longitudinal design will be used to identify the contribution
of predictor variables (representing the nature of the transition and
nursing therapeutics) to readiness for discharge and post-discharge
outcomes. Predictors include patient characteristics, quality of
pre-discharge education, and care coordination. Outcomes include
post-discharge coping difficulty and utilization of health services at 3
weeks post-discharge. Instruments were developed for the purposes of the
study, evaluated for content validity, and preliminary Cronbach's alpha
reliability estimates all exceed 0.70. Data collection is in progress and
will be completed by 12/04. Data collection occurs at 3 time points: at
enrollment prior to the day of discharge (socio-demographic and reason for
hospitalization); within 4 hours prior to discharge (Readiness for
Hospital Discharge Scale, Quality of Quality of Pre-discharge Education
Scale; Care coordination data); 3 weeks post-discharge (Post-Discharge
Coping Difficulty Scale and utilization data).
Analysis: Path analysis will be conducted to assess the contributions of
predictor variables to readiness for discharge scores and post-discharge
coping difficulty. ANOVA will be used to compare readiness for discharge
scores for those who access and do not access compensatory post-discharge
services. Following analyses of each study population separately, data
will be standardized across the populations and analyzed as an aggregate.
Implications: The results of this study have implications for assessment
of readiness for discharge, nursing care practices in preparation for
hospital discharge, decisions about discharge timing, and planning of
post-discharge care and services.
