“Short-Term Care Has Role in Skilled Nursing, But Future Remains Cloudy,” by Maggie Flynn, Skilled Nursing News
“The shifting tectonic plates in the skilled nursing landscape include a focus on value and a new payment system that puts the focus on medically complex patients and specialties. As providers try to adapt, some have chosen to go all in on a model of care that targets short-stay patients, flying in the face of skilled nursing’s image as a place for long-term care. How well they’ll succeed remains to be seen.”
LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.
