    This podcast on the Illegal Observation Status Policy and Practice was very helpful as I formulate a letter to the local hospital director about this barrier to proper health care. The tips were especially helpful- since I thought our only recourse was through the hospital. I will be following those because no written notice was given by the hospital. On the day before d/c the social worker mentioned it which started us to be somewhat clued in. One point I would make is- The subsequent SNF stay of 37 days was done on private pay- as the SNF Director if Nursing refused to submit the claim to CMS without the ” 3 day Inpatient status” paperwork. I will pursue this on behalf of the elderly woman and her family, out of principle- she has good coverage but this practice cost the family many thousands in private pay SNF stay. Thank you for your podcast.
