This pocket card will help physicians determine the appropriateness of an inpatient admission based on expected length of stay through a series of guidelines and a decision-tree chart based on Medicare regulations. Healthcare professionals can carry the laminated card in a lab coat pocket and refer to it when determining whether a patient should be admitted as inpatient, be placed in observation, or receive outpatient services.
