CCAC Rapid Response Nurse in Mississauga, Ontario

The Rapid Response Nursing (RRN) Program ensures effective transition from acute to home care for complex/high risk/high utilization individuals. Through early involvement with these patients - the first in-home nursing visit within 24 hours from hospital discharge – the RRN program provides timely and effective rapid response home care while ensuring communication with, and linkage to, primary care is well-established. The RRN will confirm the patient hospital discharge care plan, communicate the importance of primary care to avoid re-hospitalization and perform medication reconciliation for the patient.
