Resident and Family Decision Guide on Hospitalization

Nancy Leveille in Clinical & Quality

AHCA sent out this brochure developed by Dr. Ruth Tappen from Florida Atlantic University. She interviewed hundreds of residents and families and then developed this guide that could be used as an educational tool in Skilled Nursing Facilities. She works with the INTERACT team and this brochure will be posted on the INTERACT website,, for public use in the near future. SNF can use the attached version now for free. Dr. Tappen requests that you do not edit the document without permission.
