A main component of discharging patients from hospital is identifying an appropriate destination to meet their post-hospitalization needs. In Canada, meeting this goal is challenged when discharging people experiencing homelessness, who are frequently discharged to the streets or shelters. This study aimed to understand why and how the ability of hospital workers to find appropriate discharge destinations for homeless patients is influenced by dynamic social and economic contexts.
