Abstract

Heart Failure is a serious problem in the United States that affects millions each year. Core measures were created for hospitals as a standard of care for specific diseases. This research poster focused on Heart Failure core measure 1: discharging teaching that must be provided to a patient that encompasses six key areas related to heart failure management. Statistics and various studies were drawn from and analyzed to support the position of this poster, that these discharge teachings, when conducted properly, significantly reduce the rate of hospital readmissions of heart failure patients.
