Early Prediction of Discharge Disposition after Hospitalization.
Wachtel, Tom J.; And Others
Gerontologist, v27 n1 p98-103 Feb 1987

Prior nursing residence forecasted continued institutionalization; ability to perform instrumental activities of daily life and the presence of strong community support predicted a return home following hospitalization.
