While dealing with an eldercare lawyer last year, I was given the figures. From memory for each 100 people going into a nursing home on medicare (from a hospital) only 10% use up the 90 day medicare limit.

The vast majority, get well enough to return home. The next biggest group die. A few transfer to another type of facility (hospital, assisted living, etc.)
