H.A.L.T.T. (Hospital Admissions Lowered Through Therapy)


Purpose: This is an interdisciplinary team approach which utilizes therapy to reduce hospital readmissions through clinical management of the resident.

Premier’s H.A.L.T.T. Program focuses on appropriate hospital re-admissions. Premier takes a proactive approach in the identification of those residents at risk for possible re-admission to the hospital. Premier believes focus on at-risk re-admissions begins BEFORE admission to your SNF through their stay. Premier provides a H.A.L.T.T. checklist for educational support/training for your admissions team, nursing coordinators and STNA’s to alert them of conditions, factors and procedures that support an interdisciplinary team approach, including utilizing therapy to reduce unnecessary re-admissions through clinical management of the resident.
