    The bigger concern here is the corporate push to get these patients home as opposed to skilled care. While that might make sense for a select few, the physician if caught in a very difficult spot when it’s unsafe to do so and the institution is not being fully compensated for the stay. There is a campaign at my institution that says why not home. The campaign gives a free pass to put immense pressure on physicians by these innocuous sounding care teams. Providers face moral injury from such pressures.
