When multiple healthcare professionals work together to achieve patient-centered care, optimal outcomes are achieved. Communication with all team members, especially the RN, before and after patient care is needed due to the medical fragility of these patients. Coevaluations with PT/OT and cotreatments integrate communication and keep the patients’ goals in perspective. With a team approach, the patients can transfer to the next level safely. Team collaboration daily is the key to success.
