Has anyone implemented a successful program that addresses post discharge placement in Home Health, Skilled Nursing or an Inpatient Rehab facility within 72 hours of discharge when the plan of care indicates that the patient's disposition is to home? This is happening more frequently and we only find out about it when Medicare recalls their payment. I would appreciate your comments.
