Whether it’s a planned hospital stay or an emergency, the actual discharge process can be a whirlwind of tough decisions. You may need housing, rehabilitation or home care. Because of changes in Medicare funding rules, much of the care will not be at the hospital but provided after you are discharged  at home or at a skilled community.  Learn about Medicare rules regarding your options if your are on observation verses being admitted. Educating yourself on options will ease your stress level during your road to recovery. Learn how to be the best advocate for yourself or a loved one. Planning and Advanced Directives will also be discussed.
