    As an Ombudsman for long term care...this happens when the box is checked as "under observation" instead of "hospitalized."  We are called when this happens and fight for the rights of the patient.  Also, be aware that when your loved one is moved to long term care (skilled nursing) they should have an inventory sheet of all personal belongings.  We also work with the residents/patients to have their lost belongings replaced.  They often charge $100.00 for the list to be created, so keep it up to date!
