New coordinator to advocate for patients
DeKALB – Kishwaukee Community Hospital welcomes Jennifer Renfer, RN, to a new position as the readmissions coordinator.
The creation of the readmissions coordinator position is another step in the hospital’s commitment to quality care for its patients. Renfer, previously a nurse on Y1, Kish Hospital’s medical/surgical floor, is a patient advocate and a resource for patients. Her role is to ensure patients understand their post-discharge education and have all of the things they will need when they are discharged from the hospital. Renfer is also available if they have questions or concerns about their care after they go home. Her primary focus is to keep each patient on the road to recovery by empowering him or her to continue care at home through education and post-discharge follow up.
“My goal is to keep patients from frequent, preventable and costly hospital stays by giving them the tools, information and resources they can use in their home settings,” Renfer said.
