Patient Safety Tool: Discharge Checklist & Care Transition Plan

Care About Your Care is an RWJF project focusing on what people can do to provide and receive better healthcare. The discharge checklist and care transition plan helps patients ensure they have all the information they need when leaving a healthcare facility, have plans for a follow-up appointment and understand all their medications.
