Sheila arrived at A&E because her breathing had worsened. A&E were able to check the patient’s details on the Cheshire Care Record to see her medicines, check for allergies and see the GP’s diagnosis.
Sheila stayed in hospital for a few days. Before discharge, the hospital were able to see on the Cheshire Care Record that Sheila had a social care package that needed restarting and this was planned in advance so that discharge was not delayed.
On returning home, the community matron visits Sheila to discuss the continuing care support she will need whilst recovering. The matron looks at the Cheshire Care Record to get a clear picture of Sheila’s hospital treatment before the visit.
