I have heard they do receive some form of payment for referring clients to these facilities. And the way the discharge planner at the rehab facility acted with my father, made it seem credible. It was like dealing with a very aggressive, very greedy or very hungry used car salesman. She got her way, thanks to my sister. It was not at all what my father wanted. He has been deteriorating at a steady, rapid pace ever since he moved in there. (But I digress.) Just curious if that is true. If so, it seems very unethical. Like so many of the policies and procedures of the companies and non-governmental and governmental organizations involved in caring for seniors. It's a racket that has been out of control for a long time. It will be hard to do, but we need to start feeling these people in.
