|Abstract:||Hawaii's number of nursing home beds per capita is much lower than the national average, making it difficult to transfer some hospitalized patients to long-term care facilities. We prospectively followed patients wait-listed for nursing home placement in two Honolulu hospitals and found several patient characteristics that impeded transfer. These results could be used to help with long-term care planning.|
