Purpose:

This trial studies a survey of post-acute inpatient rehabilitation safety concerns in participants with cancer. Collecting patients' feedback via surveys may help doctors to learn more about the safety concerns that patients have when they are discharged from the acute inpatient cancer rehabilitation unit.


Study summary:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. Assess patients' perceptions regarding safety after acute inpatient rehabilitation at discharge and after approximately one month from discharge date. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. Assess patient's perception of factors impacting continuity of care at discharge and after approximately one month from discharge date. II. Determine the frequency of reported falls and the circumstance surrounding reported falls during hospitalization and within approximately one month from discharge date. III. Determine the frequency of reported near falls and the circumstance surrounding reported near falls within approximately one month from discharge date. IV. Identify demographic and clinical characteristics associated with feeling safe and unsafe. OUTLINE: Participants complete surveys over 15 minutes at 1-2 days before discharge and at 1 month after discharge.
