This article highlights the Caregiver Advise, Record and Enable (CARE) Act, which requires hospitals to 1) record the name of the patient’s chosen caregiver; 2) notify this caregiver if the patient will be discharged; and 3) train the caregiver in routine follow-up medical tasks. As of publication, Arkansas, Mississippi, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Virginia and West Virginia had passed this legislation. Additional information is available via AARP at http://blog.aarp.org/tag/care-act/.
