Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
When discharging an adult with a disability from the acute care setting in which they received treatment or were quarantined for COVID-19 illness, implementing the
CMIST Framework using person-centered principles can help you facilitate the individual’s return home to the most integrated setting of their choice. Examples of promising practices for person-centered discharge planning using the CMIST Framework are outlined in the table below. This is not an exhaustive list of care coordination practices. It is unlikely that every consideration described below will apply to an individual’s discharge plan. For individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities who use decision-making supports, the discharge planning process should include input from their support system.
Your discharge planning process should…
…has limited English proficiency (LEP)
…is deaf, hard of hearing, or is unable to fully use verbal speech.
...is blind or vision impaired
…requires LTSS and/or HCBS
…has one or more chronic conditions
…requires nutrition services
…requires infection prevention and control measures
…has a service animal
…has been separated from family or support providers due to social distancing requirements
…requires transportation services for groceries, prescriptions, medical appointments, etc.
