Community Paramedicine: A Community-Based Solution to Reducing Hospitals Readmissions

Paramedics from the Buckeye (AZ) Fire Department perform in-home visits for patients recently discharged from the hospital who do not qualify for home health services, but have complex medical and/or social situations that put them at risk for a hospital readmission.
