Tune in as we discuss the roadblocks that both acute care *AND* SNF SLPs face, and how we can build that bridge to boost continuity of care with special guest Brenda Arend, M.A., CCC-SLP.
"Why doesn’t my patient EVERRRRR get a swallow study at the hospital before they come to me?”
“Yikes that’s a pretty gnarly infection, I really hope their diet is upgraded once that infection clears and they get to their next level of care.”
Have you asked yourself ANY of these questions? Do you find yourself extremely frustrated with the lack of continuity in care? Well sometimes (most times) there are many other moving parts.
