Nursing Home Discharge Requirements

Lisa Volk in Clinical & Quality

The purpose of this DAL is to remind nursing facilities of their obligation to uphold the Olmstead decision by ensuring that all residents who express a desire to return to the community are provided the opportunity and assistance by the facility to allow the resident to live in the most integrated and least restrictive setting possible. See attached DAL.
