A continuation of a forum designed to address transitional care and reduce repeat hospitalizations is scheduled at Wheeling Hospital.

The first installment, held in December, was attended by more than 100 area home care and long-term care personnel.

In the second session, scheduled for Feb. 26, participants will discuss the readmission programs in use at their particular agencies. The session will begin with registration and breakfast from 9-10 a.m., with guest speaker and open discussion from 10 a.m. to noon.

Heidi Porter, director of Quality Management at Wheeling Hospital, said the focus of the forum is to decrease readmissions and enhance patient safety.
