Wisconsin is one of only a few states that has not yet passed the CARE Act into law. This proposed legislation allows hospitals and family caregivers to work together to best support the care and well-being of the patient after discharge. The CARE Act promotes proper care transition and lessens the burden on hospital staff, family caregivers and patients by lowering the rate of hospital readmissions.
