PMID:  3044556     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
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.
