Discharge of the Homeless: Is It Patient Dumping? Critical Compliance and Regulatory Issues

Because many homeless people often lack a safe place to live and the resources to take care of themselves, they often come to hospitals again and again for the same or similar medical treatment. When a hospital doesn’t properly plan a homeless patient’s discharge and post-admission placement, and cannot help that person to avoid being re-admitted needlessly in the future, then the hospital can face accusations of so-called “patient dumping.”

In this podcast, Henry Fader, partner and head of Pepper Hamilton’s Health Care Practice Group, discusses this issue and asserts that hospitals need to be aware that the care and treatment of medically or mentally ill homeless people requires not only careful attention to their medical needs, but to their discharge needs as well.
