          • Skilled Nursing Facility Partnership Development Guide - this is a very detailed guide for hospital staff meant to facilitate communication with SNFs, includes an INTERACT Capabilities List that SNFs could be asked to complete, and includes key quality, cost, and staffing measures, including readmissions rates for each SNF. MHA intends to update this nearly 500 page guide annually!
