When a resident is temporarily discharged, he or she is temporarily leaving the facility for a hospital admission or other medical necessity; there is an expectation that the resident will return to the facility. A resident is permanently discharged for death, a permanent move to another long-term care facility or a permanent move to a family home or hospice.
