    I forgot about this part:

    We never had a problem getting transport to the nursing home, but if we chose to bring mom home it was on us and we never got advanced warning. Not even a hint.
    M-Care requires a 48-hour written notice of discharge from a nursing facility. (My experience ends there, so I cannot say what is required of acute hospitals.) Sometimes the notice is given to the patient/resident, but they fail to also notify the family. I am sure they sometimes fail to provide the notice at all. M-Care, state and federal regulations require they provide assistance with discharge planning.

    Enough complaints to any of those agencies, someone will sit up and take notice.

      I never had a problem with no notice from a nursing care facility, it was always hospitals. It happened with my BIL just as it did w/mom, a call in the morning saying "release today, come and get 'em!".

      We learned about the notice of non payment from the senior service people. It puts Medicare on notice that something is wrong and they can shut down all payments to the hospital until they investigate. That gets people's attention quick.

      And daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County Down by the Green River where Paradise lay. Well, I'm sorry my son, but you're too late in asking Mister Peabody's coal train has hauled it away. John Prine
