Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Nursing homes and hospitals are dynamically interrelated, and there is much that the clinician can do to optimize patient transitions between institutions. This article approaches this topic in three sections: epidemiology of movement between hospitals and nursing homes, impacts of policy changes and financial incentives on patient transfers, and clinical strategies to reduce unnecessary hospitalizations of nursing home patients.
