New Jersey will become the first state to require the use of a standardized form when a nursing home resident is transferred to a hospital, or when a resident is moved to a long-term care facility from the hospital. The form, called the Universal Transfer Form, is one page and includes information such as the individual's vital signs, diagnosis, medications, allergies and respiratory needs. The requirement takes effect on Oct. 30.
