"Hospitalizations and re-hospitalization from nursing homes are of growing concern in the national health picture because of the focus on costs and quality of care," says Dr. Jaggard. "Efforts to reduce hospitalization rates are continuing across the country. While not all hospitalizations can be prevented, Presbyterian Homes is focused on preventing those that can."
According to Dr. Jaggard, data from CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) shows that approximately 20 percent of Medicare patients who are discharged after a hospital stay to nursing facilities are re-hospitalized within 30 days. Common conditions leading to hospitalization are congestive heart failure, urinary tract and pneumonia infections and dehydration. Many of these cases can be better managed by early recognition and management of a change of condition.
Dr. Jaggard and his team used tools and a standard training curriculum from the INTERACT™ (Interventions to Reduce Acute Care Transfers) Program, funded by CMS and led by respected geriatrician Dr. Joseph Ouslander, to provide additional nurse training in identified areas.
...
"By the end of the second year, all of our nursing care centers achieved rates lower than the average rate for re-hospitalizations," says Dr. Jaggard. "We continue to measure. Re-hospitalization rates are now a standard number reported at our quality improvement meetings."
What really makes the difference in reducing the rates of re-hospitalization? Dr. Jaggard says, "Creating a seamless flow of information from the bedside to the doctor is essential for effective intervention, which can prevent a hospitalization. This involves recognizing a change in condition, communicating that change to the RN, doing a thorough assessment and communicating that information to the doctor. He further pointed out that creating effective systems of information exchange between hospitals and nursing homes at the time of transfer is an essential step in improving quality of care.
"Finally," Dr. Jaggard said, "the presence of the physician managing the care of the patient in the nursing care facility is important to optimal care. Physicians who focus their clinical activities on the care of nursing home residents are emerging as a specialty that can make a difference by being more available at critical times."
Dr. Jaggard is a board-certified internist, certified medical director and geriatrician. He began as an attending physician at Presbyterian Homes' Westminster Place and King Home in 1983. He remained there until 2003 when he then became a full-time staff physician at Westminster Place and medical director of Lake Forest Place.
After graduating in 1979 from New Jersey Medical School, Dr. Jaggard did his internship and residency at Evanston Hospital where he became chief resident from 1982-1983. Dr. Jaggard maintained a separate internal medicine practice for 20 years until he accepted additional responsibilities at Presbyterian Homes and devoted his full time there.

...
Evanston, IL - Presbyterian Homes recently named Dr. Peter Jaggard, M.D., a board-certified internist, certified medical director and geriatrician, as its new vice president of medical affairs. He succeeds Dr. Monte Levinson, M.D., who retired after 20 years in this position and 11 prior years as medical director. Dr. Jaggard began as an attending physician at Presbyterian Homes' Westminster Place and The King Home in 1983 and remained there until 2003, when he became a full-time staff physician at Westminster Place and medical director of Lake Forest Place. Jaggard graduated in 1979 from New Jersey Medical School and did his internship and residency at Evanston Hospital where he became the chief attending physician from 1982-1983.Initially, Dr. Jaggard maintained a separate internal medicine practice for 20 years until he accepted additional responsibilities at Presbyterian Homes and devoted his full time there. "The increased complexity of medical conditions in geriatrics challenges us to apply the science of medicine. The increased frailty of older adults living longer lives challenges us to practice the art of medicine. We work with the patient and family to choose those technologies that are appropriate and care options that best reflect the patient's needs and wishes,"says Dr. Jaggard. "I am very pleased to be in a health care leadership role at Presbyterian Homes. This organization is a great place to practice medicine because of its commitment to person-centered care." Recently, Dr. Jaggard obtained an MA in Christian Thought with an emphasis on bioethics from Trinity International University. He is often called to speak on end-of-life care, bioethics and geriatrics. Dr. Jaggard lives with his wife and three children in Winnetka.
