Ongoing Support for Heart Failure Management
The Heart Link Program at The Christ Hospital is a unique tool to help patients being treated for heart failure transition from the hospital to home. A trained heart failure nurse contacts patients with heart failure shortly after hospital discharge to discuss their condition, reinforce tips and resources to self-manage the condition and highlight the importance of outpatient follow-up care. The nurse is available to provide support and answer any questions our patients or their family members may have after discharge. The program is just another way to help our patients better understand and maintain control of their heart condition.
