Healthcare service coordinators play a vital role in the healthcare industry, helping clients navigate a variety of care settings. In this assessment task, you will consider a fictional scenario describing a client who is transitioning from acute care to transitional care services. The purpose of this task is to measure your critical thinking and interdisciplinary communication skills in a simulation of a real-life situation. You will need to include three sources to support this task.
You are a healthcare service coordinator for a health insurance organization. You have been tasked with coordinating healthcare services for a new client, a 74-year-old man.
A review of his past medical history includes the following information:
He takes daily cardiac medications to treat atrial fibrillation and anticoagulants to prevent blood clots. He is a widower who lives alone in a two-story home in a rural community. He lives independently and does not need assistance with activities of daily living or with managing medications. He drives himself to his appointments and has been active in the community.
His 48-year-old daughter lives nearby with her husband and two children. She checks on him by phone every day but only visits in-person weekly due to her busy work and family schedules.
The client’s medical history describes the following incident that occurred two weeks ago:
When the man did not answer the phone one evening, his daughter decided to check on him. She found him lying in the bathroom on the second floor, trapped between the toilet and bathtub. He was lethargic and unable to answer her questions, and he had a laceration on the right side of his forehead. She called for an ambulance, and he was brought to the emergency room in his local community hospital. He was treated for his head injury, and a CT scan showed bleeding in his brain tissue.
In his neurological evaluation, he was unable to move his left arm or left leg, and as he regained consciousness, it was determined that he had left-sided facial droop.
His community hospital did not have a neurologist on staff, so he was transferred to a larger hospital in the nearest metropolitan area 45 miles away for a higher level of care. He is currently admitted to the neuro-ICU unit.
The man wants to return home and continue to live independently. He continues to have left-sided weakness and left-sided facial droop. His daughter is concerned about fall risks and feels it is unsafe for him to return home, especially since it is not possible for her to stay with him.
As the healthcare service coordinator for your new client and his family, you are responsible for determining the services your client will need throughout his acute care stay and transition into the most appropriate post-acute services.

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
