Hello. How would you handle a situation where the hospitalist discharges a patient to long term care, but there is no bed available, therefore the patient cannot leave? The hospitalist will continue to see that patient and document, but the condition has not changed. Would it be appropriate to bill after the discharge, and if so, would we bill subsequent visits? I am trying to find something in writing, but have been unsuccessful. Please advise. Thank you.
