HOSPITAL ADMISSIONS AS ‘OBSERVATION.’ 1:30 p.m. Sponsored by Advocates for Bristol Seniors, Inc. For the last few years, hospitals have been admitting patients but qualifying them as in for “observation.” After three or more days, if the patient is sent to a nursing home, he/ she does not qualify for Medicare benefits because he entered on an “observation” basis and is then billed thousands of dollars out of his/ her pocket for the nursing home care. An attorney from the Center for Medicare Advocacy will be in Bristol at the BristolSeniorCenter to discuss the issue. The center has filed a lawsuit on behalf of several victims of this practice. Attend and learn all you can to help yourself. BealsSeniorCenter, 240 Stafford Ave., Bristol. Free. Reservations required. (860) 584-7895.
