Sample Quotes/Question

  • “Thank you to all who responded with names of vent facilities who may be able to accept a patient with T.B. Within three days of posting the question on Learning Link, our patient was discharged to an LTACH that was less than two hours away. This proves how valuable an ACMA membership can be to an organization. Thank you, fellow ACMA members, for your willingness to share your expertise to help us help our patients!”
  • “This is why I love LearningLink!”
  • “I have a question for the LearningLink community: How many case management directors have regular communication/contact with their hospital’s CEO, CFO, or other VP-level administrator?  What is it like in your hospital? I’m hoping many will contribute from their experience in regards to this topic, and I look forward to reading your responses.”
