Being sick and homeless: Where to go when hospital stay ends
Merced Sun-Star - Carol Reiter

It’s their care after discharge that can make the difference between getting well or dying. But the hospital has worked hard to make sure the homeless aren’t just discharged back to the streets, where their medical needs may not be met.
