Can a nursing home discriminate because of payer source?
I work in a nursing home and asked if my mother could be admitted. I've asked on more than one occasion and have received different reasons as to why she would not be allowed admittance/acceptance to the facility. At this point I feel that the reasons given are a bit discriminatory. One was that she was on medicaid and would not be allowed since the nursing home could not afford it at this time. The case mix needed to be higher. I understand all this but now I feel like I am be discriminated against for some reason.
