Factors Differentiating Hospital Transfers from Long-term Care Facilities with High and Low Transfer Rates.
Teresi, Jeanne A.; And Others
Gerontologist, v31 n6 p795-806 Dec 1991
Examined differences among nursing homes in rates at which they transfer patients to hospitals. Data from nursing staff and charts on 286 most recent transfers from 10 nursing homes revealed that, from relatively equivalent patient populations, high-rate facilities transferred more chronically ill, physically frail patients and patients with infections and made transfers because of lack of resources.
