Discharge Policy

Process and Guidelines

Abundant Life Manor’s standard discharge policy is that a 30 day notice of discharge will be given to the resident, the resident’s guardian, and the resident’s care manager or responsible payer (if applicable).  In the cases of emergency or within the first 30 days of admission, an immediate discharge may be deemed necessary to protect the health and/or safety of the residents or others in the home.

Reasons for Discharge

  • Reasons for involuntary discharge are outlined in the CBRF regulations HFS 83.20 and may include the following:
  • Nonpayment of charges following a reasonable opportunity to pay
  • The resident’s care level exceeds services that a licensed CBRF can provide
  • The resident requires care which is inconsistent with Abundant Life Manor’s program statement and which the facility is not required to provide under HFS 83
  • Medical reasons as ordered by the resident’s physician
  • A medical emergency or disaster
  • Imminent risk of harm to health and safety of the resident or to others residing at Abundant Life Manor
  • Others reasons as outlined in the Admissions Agreement
