§483.70 (j) (2) The institution is considered a transfer contract if the institution has attempted in good faith to enter into an agreement with a hospital close enough to the institution to be transferred. A bona faith effort is considered to have been made when the nursing home has exhausted all reasonable means and has taken all necessary and appropriate steps to enter into an agreement with a hospital located near the facility to secure and manage the transfer of residents. An institution must demonstrate in good faith its efforts to reach a transfer agreement with a hospital. If a hospital that the institution has contacted refuses to accept a transfer agreement, you will find out if the institution has contacted other hospitals. Medical and other information to care for and care for residents and, if deemed appropriate by the transfer agency, to determine whether such residents can benefit from appropriate services or services within a less restrictive framework than the institution or hospital or whether they can be reintegrated into the community, shall be exchanged between providers; including, but not limited to, information required under section 483.15(c)(2)(iii). See also section 483.15 – Admission, Transfer and Discharge Fees.
