Sub Acute Care
Residents are admitted into this program following a three day stay in an acute care hospital for a wide variety of medical and therapeutic services. These residents require daily, highly skilled care for acute illness, injury, or exacerbation of a disease process. Sub acute care is goal oriented, resident centered, and requires the coordinated services of the health care team to manage and stabilize medical conditions. Examples of sub acute care include: Specialized Wound Care, Respiratory Care, IV or TPN, Pain Management, Peritoneal Dialysis, and Disease Management.
Skilled Long Term Care
Residents are admitted into this program for the provision of services that can only be provided by skilled, licensed, and unlicensed health care personnel with no planned discharge to the community. Skilled care is medically necessary and is provided to maintain or slow the decompensation of a resident’s condition. It includes palliative and hospice care. The need for skilled long term care might be due to a terminal condition, chronic disability with a high dependence in the area of daily activities, recurrent acute illnesses, or for the management of dementia related symptoms.
