Hilltop Director of Clinical and Quality Management Annette Snyder, PhD, delivered this presentation at the 138th American Public Health Association (APHA) Annual Meeting held November 6 through 10, 2010, in Denver, Colorado. The Impact of Selected Demographic, Mental Health, and Geographic Measures on Discharge from Nursing Homes among Working-Age Adults in Maryland discusses a study that examined factors associated with discharge to the community for working-age adults admitted to Maryland nursing homes over a five-year period. The study found that the strongest factors related to discharge to the community were an individual’s expressed preference for discharge and perceived support for community discharge.
