About 25% of people admitted to skilled nursing facilities from hospitals land back in the hospital within 30 days. Attendees at a free McKnight's webcast will learn how to turn that tide. The result will be improved resident satisfaction, and provider reputations and bottom lines. Registration and attendance are both free. The event starts at 1 p.m. Eastern Time on Sept. 25.
