On February 27, we provided a workshop on Patient Rights that touched on a range of topics in a virtual session. One challenge is that we cannot pass around important information and resources, so instead have created this post to be able to link information for individuals interested in key issues related to safe hospital discharges. Those materials are linked below by topic.
Preparing for A Hospital Stay
Importance of Having an Advocate
Beware of being in the Hospital on Observation Status – (see more information on the Medicare Rights site)
How to Appeal An Unsafe Discharge
Background on the Issue
