When my mother was discharged from the hospital, she chose a different nursing home.
The reason she went to the alternate one was because the doctor that saw her in the hospital could continue treating her at the alternate home but did not go to the one she was living in before. She was very sick then. Now that she is well, she wants to go back to the original nursing home she as in before she went to the hospital. The original facility she was in before going to the hospital says they will not take her back since she chose a different facility when she was discharged from the hospital instead of coming back to them. Can they refuse to take her like that? She is on Medicaid and I know they do have a medicaid bed available. She lived in the original nursing home for almost 3 years before she was ill and misses her friends.
