Hospital's goal: Reduce readmissions, lower costs
Over a period of 12 months in 2012 and 2013, Brooke Laine's father, Ed Laine, was hospitalized twice with pneumonia. Each time he came home from Barton Memorial Hospital in South Lake Tahoe, Calif., Brooke tried her best to help take care of her father, but both struggled. Brooke worried about doing the right things and managing her father's mediations. Ed, who is 82, also was worried about getting his medications right.
