Patient That Was Being Discharged

We want to share a case from our Sarasota Florida office for this week’s “Case of the Week”

Sarasota Memorial Hospital (highest rated hospital in the state, and very large) called our FL office regarding a patient that was being discharged, a veteran suffering from diabetes. Consequently, the veteran needed a special diet requiring special foods and had no money.   The hospital reached out to Veterans’ Outreach for help for this veteran. They knew of us through emergency services information. They contacted us with a plea to intercede with some food money.  We arranged the necessary coverage, gave it to his caregiver, and the groceries were covered. The hospital was very appreciative – as was the caregiver and of course the veteran.
