To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 3226), to examine methods of increasing the level of care provided by boarding homes and nursing homes, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
JOE WILSON, for Committee.
TO EXAMINE METHODS OF INCREASING THE LEVEL OF CARE PROVIDED BY BOARDING HOMES AND NURSING HOMES.
Whereas, the State of South Carolina presently has a patient classification system which results in overutilization of hospital and nursing home facilities for patients needing less than acute care; and
Whereas, the State of South Carolina has a shortage of nursing home facilities to meet the needs of her citizens; and
Whereas, present studies show the number of individuals likely to need long-term residential care facilities will increase in the future. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the South Carolina Joint Insurance Study Committee examine and develop a mechanism to provide adequate state-supported boarding home and nursing home facilities which will insure, through an appropriate medical protocol and funding formula, that proper medical care will be provided in these facilities so that transfer to acute care hospitals will not be necessary and more effective utilization of the state's health care resources and facilities will occur.
