During this webinar, Hari Sharma, PhD, discussed the availability of post-acute care and long-term care services in rural areas, focusing on nursing homes. Dr. Sharma examined the trends in nursing home closures and identified areas without nursing home services. He then explored the extent to which hospitals with swing beds provide coverage for post-acute care and long-term care services in rural areas and assessed the availability of home health care services in areas without nursing homes.
