Following an injury to his back, Leo arrived at the VGH Emergency Department by ambulance. Thanks to the support of Vancouver Coastal Health’s Quick Response Team in Vancouver, Leo was able to return to the comfort of his own home within 24 hours.
The Quick Response Team serves as a bridge between the Emergency Department and Home Health Services to ensure a safe and lasting return home for frail, complex elders who are at moderate- to high-risk for readmission to hospital, and who reside at home or in Assisted Living.
