Daily Caregiving Tip. Care Facilities: Admission
Tip 155. If being transferred to a Skilled Nursing Facility (“SNF”) from a hospital, try to get discharged early in the day. There is a lot of activity once transferred to the SNF and it is best if it can happen well before a shift change. Admission during regular business hours also means the administrative staff will be available if needed.
