In our current healthcare environment, many patients are presenting with multiple complex problems.
At the same time, hospitals are squeezed to discharge these high risk patients at a much higher level of acuity.
The quality of care is strikingly uneven.
And it is clear that many of the homes are
not up to the challenge of providing the
intensive medical care that rehabilitation
requires. Many are often short on nurses
and aides and do not have doctors on staff.
A report released in 2014 by the Department
of Health and Human Services’ Office of the
Inspector General found that 22 percent of
Medicare patients who stayed in a nursing
facility for 35 days or less experienced harm
as a result of their medical care. An additional
11 percent suffered temporary injury.
The report estimated that Medicare spent
$2.8 billion on hospital treatment in 2011
because of harm experienced in nursing
“These nursing homes were not
built for this purpose,” said
Dr. Arif Nazir, an associate
professor of clinical medicine at
Indiana University who studies
geriatrics. He said many patients
leave hospitals with acute medical
needs, before infections have been
fully treated, or as they adjust to
new medications. “These patients
are leaving the hospital half-cooked,
and believe me, the latter part of the
cooking is the hardest part,” he said.
