Nursing Home Rehabilitation Stay Proves Terminal. Was Quality of Care Given An Issue? #nursefriendly #nursecasestudy

Nursing Home Rehabilitation Stay Proves Terminal. Was Quality of Care Given An Issue?  #nursefriendly #nursecasestudy 
Nursing homes are frequently a patient's destination for rehabilitation following surgery.  Common conditions fitting this bill include large bone fractures, hip replacements and stroke. Following these acute episodes, the patients are too unstable to go home and not "sick" enough to have their hospital stays reimbursed by insurance companies.  The purpose of admission to a nursing home is to help the patient regain lost function, strength and health.  In this case, the patient would remain in the Nursing Home till her death of complications.
