High-Intensity Rehabilitation Services For Residents Of Nursing Homes

A new study reveals a growing trend of potentially unnecessary and harmful high-intensity rehabilitation services for residents of healing homes. The study finds that this trend, which may be driven by a desire to maximize reimbursement rates, is on the rise for patients in the last 30 days of life, indicating that these services may be interfering with appropriate end-of-life care.

The study was published in the  Journal of the American Medical Directors Association.
