The outcome of the transfer of 60 elderly patients suffering from dementia from hospital to nursing home care under a partnership contract was reviewed at 6 and 12 months following transfer.
The nursing home population had fared badly compared with patients remaining in hospital during the first 3 months.
This difference was less evident at 6 months follow-up and had disappeared at 12 months follow-up.
It seems that a partnership agreement such as this can deliver a quality of health care at least as good as hospital treatment as long as the transfer is handled carefully.
