Clients referred to One80 Place from hospitals and/or other services providers must meet all criteria listed on the Discharge Checklist. There are several medical conditions that are not appropriate for discharge to One80 Place and as a result, patients will not be accepted for admission.
These conditions include but are not limited to:
