I read this article and was dismayed to find that SNF's are becoming the new dumping ground for the mentally ill, often with disastrous results. The lack of beds/pysch facilities for the mentally ill seems to be driving this trend. Pretty scary! http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090322/..._nursing_homes
Opps! MI should be mentally ill, not myocardial infarction! This is why Joint Commision did away with abbreviations!
Can one of the mods change the title to Mentally Ill instead of MI?
