    In a recent survey, 90 percent of seniors expressed a desire to remain in their homes as long as physically possible, and with advances in home healthcare technology this should be increasingly possible. More patients who would have otherwise had to stay in a hospital or nursing home will be able to stay at home in a familiar setting. Examples of such indicators used successfully by hospitals participating in the Urgent Matters initiative are time from inpatient bed assignment to bed placement, inpatient bed turnaround time, total ED throughput time, and time to thrombolysis for cardiac patients (Wilson et al., ). At least in a nursing home there will be other signs of life around them. The above are some of the many happenings in people's lives that make a decision to enter a nursing home or retirement home necessary. Sometimes the elderly have to make their decision alone, while at other times they will have help in making this choice.
