Hospital discharge readiness is an important yet often elusive matter for pediatric patients, families, and health care providers. Caregiver readiness for discharge should be assessed both at admission and before discharge to allow for timely education and training. The Pediatric Readiness for Hospital Discharge Scale is recommended for use by OTs in an acute rehabilitation setting because they harness the unique ability to address both physical and psychosocial aspects of the child and family encompassed by the measure.
