Appeal 1117214

Fair Hearing Decision 1117214

Notice is deficient in that it indicates the intention to discharge Appellant to her former home to live with her son. Appellant was admitted to the nursing facility with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and was clinically determined to require skilled nursing services; the only safe and appropriate setting for Appellant would be another skilled nursing facility capable of meeting the needs of a resident with Alzheimer’s disease. Accordingly, the subject 30-Day Notice of Intent to Discharge fails to indicate a safe and appropriate discharge location.
