Boomerang Hospitalizations of Nursing Home Residents

seniors-1505944_640-thumb-250x166-97774.jpgBoomerang hospitalizations severely impact patient health and put patients at significant risk of potentially life-threatening complications. Patients who are prematurely released from hospital care and patients who receive substandard care from their nursing home provider are at considerable risk of becoming entrapped in the boomerang cycle. Regulators are taking notice and in 2016, it was estimated that potentially avoidable hospital readmissions had dropped from 12.4% in 2011 to 10.8% in 2016. While the rates of boomerang admissions are declining, it is a problem that continues to affect millions of nursing home residents across the country.
