A Community-Wide Effort to Reduce Hospital Utilization By Patients Requiring Nursing Home Placement.
Lagoe, Ronald J.
Gerontologist, v29 n1 p67-73 Feb 1989
Increased admissions from hospitals to nursing homes over six-month period resulted in reduced number of hospital nonacute patients requiring long-term care placement. Nursing homes shifted admissions patterns to accept more persons from non-hospital settings, hospital admissions declined, and number of nonacute patients in hospitals increased. (Author/NB)
