Nursing homes must give patients notice of their need for transfer to another facility and alternatives to transfer. If the transfer is to a facility other than a hospital, a nursing home must provide advanced notice, take actions that ensure an orderly transfer or discharge, and document such actions in the resident’s medical record.
