We’ve established a new form for Network 16 facilities to report Involuntary Discharge or Transfer. Find the form and instructions for using it at https://www.nwrn.org/providers-and-professional-staff/patient-services/ivd.html.
The Conditions for Coverage (CfC) require all facilities to notify both the Network and your State Survey Agency, within specified time parameters, of all involuntary discharges and transfers. Better yet, if you’re considering an involuntary discharge or transfer, first contact the Network Patient Services Coordinator, Lisa Hall (firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-923-0714), to help you negotiate a better outcome.
