Personal Care Home vs Chronic Health Facility

Some facilities such as a Chronic Health Facility offer different programs that correspond to different levels of care. Use your judgement and available information to decide what to code for Category:Awaiting/delayed transfer diagnoses and for Pre acute living situation field.
