Title: Transfer of patients from acute to long-term care: influence of patient characteristics on waiting period.
Authors: Epure, James P

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.
