Hospital intensive care

My mom stayed in a hospital intensive care unit for one month. Does the hospital has the right transfer her?

My mom stayed in the intensive care unit for a month, she has insurance coverage, she is a citizen. hospital asked her to transfer to another hospital other wise they will stop all the necessary medical services including treatment,etc. Is it a criminal? Hospital has the right to do so?

Nathan’s Answer

I am sorry to hear your mother required ICU care. Has her condition deteriorated, or gotten better, in a way that makes it so that ICU is no longer the right place for her? Doctors may have decided it is better for her to go to telemetry or a step-down unit, rather than to stay in ICU where critical, urgent, acute care is administered. A social worker at the ICU office or level or floor may be able to work with you to explain what is going on in more detail.
