Movement from hospital to residential aged care

26 Nov 2008
Description

The movement of people between acute hospital care and residential aged care has long been recognised as an important issue, but existing national data sets provide only limited information on such movement. This report presents the first comprehensive statistical results into issues affecting movement from hospital into residential aged care, using linked hospital care and residential aged care data for 2001-02. In particular, factors affecting admission into residential care on discharge from hospital are examined.
