Just happened to my family member -- while at the hospital, the NH is now refusing to readmit! They shipped my family member off to the hospital and now we are scrambling to try and find a new NH in the midst of this pandemic. Their initial notification was a phone call -- then followed by an involuntary discharge notice. Even though there is an appeal process it will take too long to go through the process. After speaking with the local ombudsman, I am learning this happens frequently. What a nightmare, and how devastating to my family member who did nothing wrong. They are required to give 30 days notice and are refusing -- would rather take a fine. How can this be legal?
