Conducting a predischarge home assessment can provide important information to the hospital care team for discharge planning and postdischarge care. In addition, a predischarge home visit assists the family in preparing for the infant or child's care needs. This report describes an Environmental Assessment Guide initially developed and subsequently used in two nursing research studies. Anecdotal information from advanced practice nurse care records is provided to illustrate issues relating to predischarge assessment. Copyright & 2000 by W.B. Saunders Company.
