The Impact of Selected Demographic, Mental Health, and Geographic Measures on Discharge from Nursing Homes among Working-Age Adults in Maryland

November 10, 2010

Hilltop Director of Clinical and Quality Management Annette Snyder, PhD, delivered this presentation at the 138th American Public Health Association (APHA) Annual Meeting held November 6 through 10, 2010, in Denver, Colorado. The Impact of Selected Demographic, Mental Health, and Geographic Measures on Discharge from Nursing Homes among Working-Age Adults in Maryland discusses a study that examined factors associated with discharge to the community for working-age adults admitted to Maryland nursing homes over a five-year period. The study found that the strongest factors related to discharge to the community were an individual's expressed preference for discharge and perceived support for community discharge.
