The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

DRGs, Elderly Patients, and the Managerial Family.

Fischer, Lucy Rose and Nancy N. Eustis.

Care for the elderly is compared before (1983) and after (1986) the new prospective payment system for hospitals was instituted. Major changes have occurred in the way the sick elderly are treated. Hospital care is essentially rationed and families are being forced into the role of managers in obtaining care for their elderly members.
