He was told by his surgeon and PT. They gave him a date of May 19 with no reason why. Other than it hits the 30 day window of being in the nursing home. I suspect fraud. He is walking by himself with a walker and can get in/out of bed and to the restroom. I have escalated to the ED and Head of Rehab and they seem to be avoiding the issue. His surgeon, infectious disease doctor both wanted him out over a week ago. I have repeatedly asked for what specifically he needs to demonstrate to permit a discharge. According to his PT, he is ready. I don't know what to do other than continue to call and demand answers.
