Hospital Discharges and Admissions to Nursing Homes

Stephen B Hanse in Clinical & Quality

Following the issuance of yesterday’s DOH Advisory regarding hospital discharges and admissions to nursing homes, NYSHFA/NYSCAL has been working with the DOH to stress the importance of, among other things, securing facilities without COVID-19 positive residents or staff, ensuring comprehensive medical data is provided by the referring hospital prior to admission and, in multi-owner circumstances, the potential to regionally cohort COVID-19 residents at a specific facility while safeguarding other non-COVID-19 facilities from exposure.
