I suspect I am not the only one to whom this option is available.

But then, I guess some people would rather just b***ch about it.
Absolutely it's an option to fill out the questionnaires at home. I'm going to a new neurologist tomorrow and they said I can either fill out the paperwork at home or show up 30 minutes early. Easy choice there!

Usually legal CYA is in patient's best interest. No one wants the wrong knee operated on.

Yup, that's been my experience as well, as well as for other members of my family. In fact, given a choice, those providers would much rather have patients fill out those forms at home and bring them to the office.

Saves everyone time when this is done.

Some of these questions have been routine for admission into hospitals for years.

As an admitting RN it didn't occur to me that anyone was had a concern would be identified due to this anyway. Most of the time it was another household member who accompanied the patient. Like they would have said that in front of them?

The homeless patients were the least worried of any of them. They knew there would be indigent care programs to help with their discharge orders.

We would sometimes identify concerns prior to discharge but still rarely from the patient's statements. Usually from other family members & the inevitable re-admits that would occur. Sometimes home health care agencies would tip us off. There were times when it boiled down to instinct of the floor nurses who would request a hospital social worker be consulted.

Of all the reasons why interventions occurred; none of them ever did because of these admit questions. There would be a different dynamic for a doctors office or especially pediatricians office; these are just my observations as an acute care hospital RN.

I agree with the bolds. It is very common for the visiting nurse/public health nurse to ask such questions. Plus, if you're in the house, some of this stuff is fairly obvious.
