Returning Home

When discharging an adult with a disability from the acute care setting in which they received treatment or were quarantined for COVID-19 illness, implementing the CMIST Framework using person-centered p​rinciples can help you facilitate the individual’s return home to the most integrated setting of their choice. Examples of promising practices for person-centered discharge planning using the CMIST Framework are outlined in the table below. This is not an exhaustive list of care coordination practices. It is unlikely that every consideration described below will apply to an individual’s discharge plan. For individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities who use decision-making supports, the discharge planning process should include input from their support system.
