An issue that can be overlooked is that even though a patient had a medical issue that led to their initial hospitalization. Sometimes patients don’t have a medical reason to remain hospitalized for most of their stay.

Legally and morally, hospitals cannot discharge patients if they have no safe place to go. So, patients can end up occupying hospital beds for weeks or months — even after their acute medical problem is resolved.

Hospital Bed Issue:
Also, they are motivated to free up more ER beds for patients with more critical needs.

Hospitals want to be prepared for life-threatening conditions so if most of the beds are taken up by someone who can instead be receiving patient care close by, then they might be motivated to assist with a furnished apartment.

Therefore, for hospitals, it means losing money because a patient lingering in a bed without 24/7 medical problems doesn’t generate much, if any, income. Meanwhile, acutely ill patients may wait days in the ER to be moved to the floor because a hospital’s beds are full. You can use the point that it will be far less expensive for the hospital to help pay for short term housing as it helps their financials as well as free up capacity for the patients that need acute care.

Hospitalization

No Need for 24/7 Hospitalization

This is where discussions with the hospital whereby living close to hospital in a short-term apartment might be ideal when only visitations are required without 24/7 monitoring after stabilization.

Housing Vouchers:
Check into housing vouchers for frequent users of the emergency room, sometimes hospitals will offer them. Please check with the hospital because with recent federal policy changes have encouraged hospitals to allocate charity dollars towards housing, many hospitals realize it’s cheaper to provide a month of housing than to keep patients even for a single night!

Hospital Motivated by Savings

Once patients received housing vouchers and found stable housing, though, costs began to drop.

Hospitals are businesses and nonprofits are businesses,” They are bottom-line, dollars-and-cents people. Therefore, once you point out their potential savings, they could be more likely to collaborate with you regarding short-term housing accommodations.

Getting patients into housing can lower their costs and increase their operating margins.

Because of this issue, it is worth checking to see if the hospital will pay for part of the housing because they might be motivated as it will end up being significantly less expensive for them if the patient is in proximity vs being hospitalized.

The hospital really is like the most expensive form of housing. Therefore, it’s worth exploring if the hospital will pay for the housing portion itself. Because That will still be far cheaper than what the hospital currently spends.

For example, it’s not uncommon for a hospital to spend at least $3,000 a night to keep someone hospitalized. Patients who are prime candidates for the transitional units stay on average 73 days, for a total cost to the hospital of nearly $200,000. The hospital estimates it would cost a fraction of that to spend on short term housing, for the same period of time.

Because hospitals are generally paid a fixed amount for a given diagnosis, the longer a patient stays in the hospital, the more money the hospital loses.

Improve Patient Recovery

A recent report from the Urban Institute found that while most hospital administrators are well aware of how poor housing affects a patient’s recovery, they were stymied about how best to address the issue.

The report found housing investment has been more likely among hospitals with their own health plans or other types of arrangements in which they receive fixed amount of money to care for patients.

This really helps the hospital because they now know where their patients are located in close proximity, that is a safe place to live, which can be more effective in managing their chronic conditions.

The patients with stable housing were more likely to make it to their primary care and specialist appointments, more likely to stay on top of medications and keep their chronic conditions in check.

Affordable Care Act

There is also the Affordable Care Act, which requires hospitals to perform a community needs assessment to help guide their charitable efforts. That prompted more hospitals to consider the social needs of their patients and pushed housing concerns up the list. Additionally, the Internal Revenue Service clarified in 2015 that hospitals could claim housing investments as charitable spending required under their tax-free status. And provisions included in the 2017 tax cut bill provided significant tax savings for investors in newly designated opportunity zones, increasing their interest in affordable housing projects.
