Help discharging a patient with a difficult family

asked May 9, 2013 | 0 followers | follow

I need some help with the discharge plan for an elderly lady who requires SNF placement due to multiple medical conditions. The patient is stable and ready to be discharged to a lower level of care,but the patient’s family has rejected every facility that came up, most of the time for no legitimate reason. What’s worse is that even the SNF’s have gotten ‘wind’ of the difficult demeanor of family members who are extremely demanding and unreasonable. What should I do?
